A bridge consisting of three segmental arches, with cut-waters continuing upwards to form triangular refuges. It is built of roughly coursed local slate and gritstone rubble. The central and east arches are formed of sandstone voussoirs, but the W arch was rebuilt in 1675 and again in 1703. Stone panels surmounted by a double ogee capping are set in the apex of each parapet over the central arch. That on the S, which is well preserved, contains the Stuart arms in an enriched frame bearing the date 1636; on top of the cap is a later sundial. The inner or road face is plain. The inner face of the N panel carries the date 1636; its outer face, now weathered, contains the Prince of Wales' feathers in a less elaborate frame than the S panel.
