Large keyed oculus between southern arches; smaller semicircular- arches of similar form flank northern arch, with paved inverts well above normal river level. Battered semi- octagonal cutwaters. Dentil cornice. Parapet with shallow pilasters on both faces and gabled coping; to north parapet splays out to circular piers on stepped pilasters; similar south-east parapet end; west parapet realigned in C20 at splayed angle, carried on iron girder. Contemporary wall with flat coping running north from north end of east parapet to terminate opposite east end of Angler's Arms Hotel.
