Datestone 1668 on east side probably refers to restoration. Plaque with cross keys of St. Peter on west side. Central plaque with inscription relates to restoration of 1829. Causeways attached to each end, each of 5 arches, originally formed part of the bridge. Widened on west side and east parapets renewed and refaced in brick and ashlar; probably all of 1922.
