Description
Four-arch humpback road bridge, built c. 1760, carrying road over Glashaboy River. Rubble sandstone walls with rubble sandstone copings to parapets. Round arches with rubble sandstone voussoirs. V-cutwaters to south elevation. Extended with cast concrete span to north.

Appraisal

The wide span and multiple arches are unusual. Well designed and carefully executed, the symmetry and form make it a notable feature within the landscape.
