Wide elliptical arch with stepped voussoirs; flanking round pedestrian archways with rock-faced voussoirs and keystones. Tooled flat string course and parapet with coping. The Wolvercot Junction-Evesham stretch of the Oxford, Worcester and Wolverhampton Railway was opened in June 1853, and doubled in August 1854.
