Road bridge over River Mill Avon. Dated 1822 on central plaque each side. Cast-iron and sandstone. Segmental arch in single span on 5 ribs with openwork spandrels of linked circles, set to sandstone abutments. Roadway rises slightly at centre, and contained in simple railing with small square balusters approx 1.6m high, to standards with urn finials and central decorative panel bearing circular plaque inscribed "THIS BRIDGE WAS ERECTED IN THE YEAR 1822", under a relief modelled urn. Balustrade carried on heavy cast-iron cambered structural beam above ribs, and returned at abutments; to W in 3 bays above ramped coursed stone retaining walls to heavy square sandstone coping for approx 6m, and to E similar, but abutment extends approx 19m to set of waterside steps. The bridge has asphalted roadway, and has been extended to S with an extra width on separate structure. A typically elegant design which is still heavily used by traffic to Borough Mills.
