The parapets are low and have a string course at base and a coping, both in rock-faced masonry with chisel drafted margins. Four small piers with rounded copings terminate the parapets. Rounded wing walls.

One of a set of bridges, in various monumental styles and evidently designed by different hands, related to the exploitation of the Reservoir perimeter road for its touristic potential, and closely related to the management of the Reservoir estate.
