The monument consists of the remains of a packhorse bridge, dating to the post-medieval period. The bridge was built between 1650 and 1675, and carries Fellows Lane over the River Alyn. It contains seven ashlar arches, with pointed cutwaters to the piers and two pedestrian refuges.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of medieval or post-medieval construction techniques and transportation systems. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
