Description

Single-arch ashlar limestone bridge carrying the railway over the road, built c.1850, with rock-faced voussoirs and piers. Replacement plinth railings.

Appraisal

Clearly the work of skilled masons, this bridge is executed with high quality masonry. The form of the bridge is articulated with rock-faced voussoirs and piers and with string courses. This bridge and the adjacent canal bridge create a surprising and dramatic group in the landscape.
