Exterior

A single-carriageway bridge of rubble stone. A single segmental stone arch has hammer-dressed voussoirs which is set back from the face of the bridge behind dressed quoins. The parapets, now partly missing, curve outwards and terminate with simple square piers, now partly fallen. A dated tablet is set into the parapet on the upstream side.
