Single-arch ashlar limestone bridge carrying the canal the over road, built c.1795, with string courses, rock-faced voussoirs and pilasters. Scars of plaques, now removed, are apparent on both elevations. Stone lock gates to canal.
This single-arch canal bridge forms an interesting group of related structure with the canal workers' house, lock and multiple-arch aqueduct. Clearly the work of skilled masons, this bridge is executed with high quality masonry. The form of the bridge is articulated with channelled ashlar to the arches and piers and with string courses. This bridge and the adjacent railway bridge create a surprising and dramatic group in the landscape.
