This bridge is a fine example of a rural canal bridge, retaining its narrow width where others have been widened for modern traffic needs. This enhances the sense of history which the bridge contributes to the vicinity. Though modest in size, it is the focal feature of the area, visible from a distance along the canal corridor and necessitating the rise in road level on each approach.
