Road bridge over Long Grain, a tributary of the River Lune. Probably late C18

Both faces similar. 2 low segmental arches, with rough voussoirs alternately
flush and projecting, flank a later triangular-plan cutwater with sloping top.
Faces with scattered throughstones and later snecked-stone infill to ends.
Slightly-curved parapet with large coping stones laid alternately upright and
flat producing a slightly embattled effect.
