A bit worn. Has weathered over the years and now blends in well with the stonework of the bridge.

Railway Bridge (disused), E face of W parapet at S end (road level). FB in good condition, but bridge is not - has much heavy pointing and is covered in markings which indicate that it is being monitored for settlement.
