Road bridge, single arch span with each spandrel pierced by a circular opening. Both main arch and circles have fine cut stone voussoirs. Projecting sill at carriageway level to both sides below renewed rubble stone parapet with limestone coping. Square piers to bridge head terminals with ridged grey limestone capstones. Rubble stone abutments each side, those on N continued as stone walls each side of roadway, roadway and embankment removed on S. Bridge is reinforced with late C20 metal ties.
