This bridge was built in around 1830 and has a single span and splayed parapet. It was built in dressed rubble, apparently by Hugh Miller. The previous bridge was swept away in a flood in 1829. The bridge links Fishertown with Henrietta Street. The bridge was researched as part of an archaeological desktop and walkover survey ahead of a water main renewal project.
