The monument consists of the remains of a bridge, dating to the post-medieval period. The bridge crosses the B4231 road and served the Monmouth tramroad between Howler’s Slade at Coleford and Monmouth, which opened in 1812. The bridge was on a branch line serving the Redbrook tinplate works. The bridge is built of coursed blocks of red Forest of Dean sandstone conglomerate, with dressed voussoirs to the arches. It consists of a single round headed arch spanning the road, with a circular opening uphill on the north-east side. The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of xmedieval 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.
