A hump-backed bridge of rubble with segmental arch of dressed voussoirs, with keystones, slightly inset below extrados course of narrow slabs. Long approaches with rough parapet.
The bridge is 2.75 m wide between the parapet walls. It has been closed to traffic and is now used only as a foot-bridge. A modern sculpture has been placed at the E end of the bridge and a stone block built at the W end to prevent vehicular access.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of port medieval bridge building.
