Railway bridge. 1847. For the York and North Midland Railway Company.

Rock-faced gritstone, brick soffits. Treble-span, skew-arched bridge accommodating field track over disused railway cutting. Segmental arches having voussoirs aligned with courses spring from piers with impost bands.

End piers, set forward, are linked by a nosed ashlar band beneath more deeply coursed parapet with weathered ashlar copings. Unaltered and original to the Church Fenton-Spofforth line opened on 10th August 1847 and linked to Harrogate the following year.
