Bridge abutments to roadbridge over the Newcastle-Carlisle railway line, and retaining walls supporting the 3 raised roads leading to the bridge. 1847, at the behest of the local Turnpike Trust. Coursed sandstone rubble with rockfaced piers at intervals; these run up over a rockfaced-and-margined band at roadbed level and continue as dressed-stone buttresses to end in flattened-pyramidal tops just above the level of the slightly-chamfered parapet coping. The bridge abutments have projecting offset dressed-stone buttresses. Bridge replaced in modern riveted steel. An arched opening through the south-western arm gives access to open land at west; and a cart ramp leads from northern arm into fields to north-west.
