ICE reference number  HEW 896
A medieval stone bridge over the River Divelish, consisting of a pair of pointed triangular arches each with a 6ft span.
The bridge is a Scheduled Ancient Monument, and derives its name from its 6in parapet, built low so as to allow laden pack-animals to pass without obstruction. Timber hand-rails have since been added.
