Road bridge over River Barle on former drive to Pixton Park (qv), now abandoned. Circa 1870, Coursed local slate stone, dressed voussoirs stepped out. Three arch span, semi-circular outer arches, larger segmental central arch, low pointed cutwaters on south faces, flat string band, chamfered saddle back coping and low square piers at either ends of parapet obscurer by ivy at time of survey (July 1985). Inserted elliptical openings in centre of parapets, possibly utilising medieval stone work. Northern parapet slightly damaged and in need of repointing.
