Description
Triple-arch humpback road bridge, built c. 1775, with round arches and with triangular cutwaters to north side. Partially rendered limestone rubble walls, with roughly-dressed limestone cutwaters, voussoirs and coping stones to parapets.

Appraisal

Textural interest is provided by the contrast between the dressed voussoirs and the rubble stone walls of this bridge. The generously-sized round arches, steepness of the humpback and bend in the road add interest to the surrounding landscape.
