The S parapet has three such buttresses, two flanking the arch and a further one to the W where the parapet bows slightly southwards where the bridge terminates. The N parapet has 2 buttresses flanking the bridge arch and terminating the parapet walls which curve northwards, following the course of the river. The NE parapet wall is continued for a further 10m along the riverbank in a later stretch of stone-coped rubble walling. There is a benchmark on the inner face of the S parapet.
