boulders, with tufa blocks. Single-span shallow segmental arch with dressed
rubble and voussoirs. Rubble crest to parapet, large worn boulders as
terminals. The stones are mortared but carefully built up to give the
appearance of dry walling. The bridge carries a narrow bridle or pedestrian

(demolished). W T C Walker, personal communication.
