Description

A road bridge, now closed to vehicular traffic.

The bridge is as described, consisting of five three-centred arches spanning some 70 m. The width between the parapets is 4.25 m. There are four triangular piers on each side, one between each pair of arches.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of post medieval transport and construction. 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.
