This bridge is partly in Horsham District and partly in former Petworth Rural
District, the major portion being in the latter. The River Arun here forms
2 branches with an island in the middle. The bridge spans both but the boundary
between the 2 Districts passes through the centre of the east branch. The
bridge was erected in 1875 but is built in the medieval tradition. Ashlar.
The west branch of the river is spanned by 4 low elliptical arches, the east
branch by one similar arch with a solid portion between. Blunt cut-waters
between the western arches. Buttresses flanking the eastern arch and the solid
portion. Modillion cornice below the parapet. Over this and above each pier
is a semi-circular pierced recess corbelled out from each pier. The road approaches
of the bridge are flanked by piers supporting ball caps and also an opening
from the south side of the bridge on to the island.
