Description
Single-arch road bridge over the Shankill River, built c.1820. The bridge is rubble-constructed with dressed granite voussoirs to the semi-circular arch. The parapets are also largely in rubble, but both have an unusual somewhat 'rustic' central balustrade section consisting of plain squat square granite balusters arranged corner to corner, and a plain granite rail.

Appraisal

Unusual early 19th-century road bridge with 'rustic' balustrade, whose overall impart is enhanced by its delightful wooded setting.
