The bridge dates to the early 13th century, and has an arch which can be dated to the 12th century. It has seven arches oer the River Wear, and two land arches, and triangular cutwaters on the north and south sides. The houses, now a shop, on the east end of the bridge dates to the 17th and early 18th century. It is on the site of the medieval chapel of St Andrew. The second house is over a land cutwater and the base of the house is corbelled.
