Double-arch road bridge over river, built c. 1770. Round-headed arches with squared rubble voussoirs and random rubble to vaults. Random rubble parapet walls with vertical stone copings. Double carriageway to tarmacadam deck. Located on the same river north of Redcastle bridge (40903111).
An attractive bridge, which is much enhanced by the quality craft employed, particularly in its finely executed cut voussoirs. This record suggests that it is a two arched bridge, but due to the overgrown state of the site this could not be confirmed by the field recorder. This bridge constitutes an integral part of the area's historic environment and complements its rural setting. After over two centuries, its continued use is testament to its design and construction. It is shown on the Ordnance Survey first edition six-inch map of c. 1837.
