The monument consists of the remains of a bridge, dating to the medieval or post-medieval period. The bridge has a single segmental arch without parapets. It spans c. 10m and is c. 3m wide, springing from vertical abutments with splayed sides. The monument is now ruinous, although structurally sound.
