Bridge over canal, later railway bridge. 1819-23 for the Carlisle Canal; additions of 1853-4 for the Port Carlisle Dock and Railway Company. Squared and coursed red and calciferous sandstone; cast-iron central parapet on supporting wooden pillars. Plinth with rounded corners was originally the supporting structure for a canal drawbridge. Increased in height to convert this to a railway bridge, when the canal closed. When the railway closed in 1964, the wooden supports were placed under the bridge.
