On downstream side, the bridge has 2 round arches with keystones and flood arch to left with rusticated keystone, stepped pier between 2 main arches. On upstream side, 2 round arches with keystones, central stepped cutwater in ashlar and ashlar abutments, probably of earlier build; flood arch as on downstream side. Length of bridge about 12 metres, span across of about 4 metres. Parapet rebuilt, slightly above road level, with C20 railings.
