Description
Triple-arch limestone bridge, built 1863, over the River Ara. Segmental arches with dressed stone voussoirs, dressed stone to spandrels, carved U-shaped cut-waters to south elevation and chamfered string course over arches with snecked roughly-dressed stone parapet walls and having abutments projecting from elevations of bridge, topped with caps. Commemorative date plaque to north parapet wall and cast-iron overflow hatch to south. Landscaped area to southwest bank.

Appraisal

Bansha Bridge is visually pleasing and well proportioned. High quality craftsmanship is evident in the execution of the U-shaped cut-waters and the general stonework. Decorative appeal is recognized by the landscaped area, which incorporates public seating.
