Appraisal

Toberdaly Bridge is a fine hump back bridge, which crosses the Grand Canal. The well executed stonework seen in the string course, voussoirs and piers, elevates this bridge. Toberdaly Bridge makes a positive contribution to the canalscape and is an important part of the architectural heritage of the inland waterways. This section of the canal was opened in 1797.
