Slightly curved roadway constructed of large girders supported by 2 rows of circular columns with weatherings.

The piers are surmounted by 4 good double lamp standards with entwined dolphins and scallop shells at bases, scrolled foliage to globe brackets and finials. These globe lamps are said to be part of the earliest electric street lighting installed in a town in Britian. (see under the Parade). Good ironwork handrails flank roadway, turned balusters with crocket capitals and openwork panels comparable to the Vivary Park gates. Tone Bridge and Nos 5 to 9 (odd) The Bridge (West Side) form a group.
