Continuous plain railed balustrade with evenly spaced standards to each eleven square balusters, decorative panel at centre, each side of roadway with elaborate lamp standards incorporated, and cast lettering in silhouette: ANNO DOMINI 1816 and MONMOUTH to South GLOUCESTER to north: the bridge is half in Wales and half in England.
