Single segmental span with panelled spandrels; chamfered string; each
parapet has a rounded coping and panelled rectangular piers with pyramidal
caps. Central blank panels on the outside of each parapet. The parapets
are angled back at each end. The bridge is an early example of reinforced

said to be on the bridge and recording its date and designer was not
noted at the time of survey (September 1985). Anthony Blackwall,
