This old bridge over the Derwent is one of the most interesting in the County. There are three pointed arches which on the south side are recessed and each angle is worked with a wave moulding. The triangular cutwaters have been cut down to one 3ft and the parapet now runs in a straight line. Attached to the bridge at the west end are the remains of a chapel, consisting of walls and a good doorway with a late 15th century casement moulding. The bridge has been widened on the north side by taking down the parapet and cutwaters extending the width of the bridge. Chapel includes later mullioned windows to the west of doorway. Walls well consolidated and abut present bridge.
