Latheron Wheel Harbour Bridge. This bridge probably dates from mid 18th century and has a single segmental arch, about 48ft (14.6m) in span, with a slight hump. The voussoirs are dressed stone, the rest rubble. The abutment courses are mortared but the spandrels are drystone or have lost their mortar.
G Nelson 1990.

This bridge carries an unclassified public road across the Burn of Latheronwheel to the NW of Latheronwheel (Janetstown) harbour.
