William Copley (Civic Trust Newsletter); central span replaced 1897 in
ironwork by Newton Chambers of Sheffield. Fabricated iron central span;

beneath rough-cast parapets with copings which terminate at end piers each
with ashlar frieze and modillioned cornice. Central span has riveted girders
with cross-braced side panels set in rebates in quoined and corniced abutment
piers. Square-latticed balustrade with wooden handrail on downstream side.
