This is one of only a few through style cast iron arch bridges in the UK. Most cast iron arch bridges are deck arch bridges. At some point in the bridge's historic riveted floorbeams were added to supplement the original cast iron floorbeams. Both remain in place. A newer (but still old) bridge was built to replace this bridge, resulting in this bridge being abandoned but not demolished. The deck has been removed, but the arches and floorbeams all remain in place and available for viewing their impressive cast iron construction. Having the deck off the bridge actually better illuminates the details of the construction.
