- None recorded
Double-arched stone built bridge. The bridge is constructed of roughly dressed, coursed limestone blocks and is approximately 10 metres wide and three to four metres high. The arches are identical, each tunnel is approximately 2½ metres wide and eight metres long. The bridge is flanked on either side by limestone retaining walls. There is a boundary wall running up to the centre of the bridge, (in between the two arches), presumably the double arch is to accommodate landowners on either side of the boundary wall. (1-4). Unusual occupation underbridge of the former CHPR. (5)
