Ashlar magnesian limestone. 5 segmentally- arched spans of which 2 are over the present course of the River Wharfe which forms the parish boundary with Thorp Arch. The central arch is flanked by triangular cutwaters which rise to form pedestrian retreats in the parapet; the remaining piers have cutwaters terminating in offsets. Continuous band beneath the parapet which has chamfered copings. South end (in Boston Spa parish) is much rebuilt on the west side and the east side has rock-faced retaining wall supporting a widened entrance to the bridge; both parapets terminate in early C19 round-ended piers with bands. North end of bridge (in Thorp Arch parish) terminates at square piers but the east parapet is continued by a curving wall with rounded end pier as those to south. Partly in the parish of Thorp Arch (see under Bridge Foot). H. Speight, Lower Wharfedale, 1902.
