The surviving original bridge structure stands alongside the Cirencester / Tetbury Road (A433) which was realigned in 1962, making the bridge largely redundant. It now serves a few property frontages.
It is a standard Thames & Severn canal company road bridge built of rubblestone with ashlared voussoirs and drip mould in the segmental arch. The wing walls are built with an inward ‘batter’ and curve outwards from the arch to end in pilaster terminals. The parapet is level over the arch and topped by a plain stone coping.
A new bridge would be required for the A433 if the canal is to be restored in this area.
