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.

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