T-section iron lattices between arches and railway bed girders, which are also supported by masonry. Sloped copings to buttressed piers and abutments. Ashlar skew arch over Stepney Road. Historical note: one of the earliest bridges constructed in Britain using the Wiebeking system of laminated wood; the present iron work closely resembles the timber original.
