Description

The monument consists of the remains of a bridge dating from the late medieval period (probably c. 16th century or earlier). It is built of stone, has been restored and consists of four spans 3m wide with segmental pointed arches. The intervening cutwaters are stepped to the bridge parapets. There are two openings in the parapet on the south side for sheep washing.

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 possibility 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 area around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
