Description
Three-arch bridge, built c.1860, over the River Camcor, and set within Birr Castle demesne. Yellow brick soffits and arches to segmental arches, brick parapets, snecked rock-faced limestone to spandrels and roughly dressed limestone to piers and to upstream cutwaters. Plaque to parapet depicting earlier bridge of 1640 is most likely from another structure elsewhere in Birr area. Earlier three-arch bridge had castellated parapets over river bank.

Appraisal

This elegantly-built bridge is notable for its brick arching and parapet. Its location within Birr Castle demesne associates it an impressive array of other demesne structures. It forms a technically-interesting structure over the River Camcor.
