Looking across the bridge

Crossford Bridge carries the B7056 across the River Clyde in the small village of Crossford. It is a narrow stone arch bridge which gives priority to traffic heading east, away from the A72, despite somewhat limited visibility across the bridge thanks to a slight incline from either bank. The bridge consists of three shallow arches, with the two intermediate piers set in the river. These are protected by pointed cutwaters, above which shallow pilasters rise up to the tops of the parapets, breaking up the outer faces of the bridge. The main structure is built of squared, coursed rubble stone with a string line at roadway level matching the coping stones above the otherwise plain parapets. The narrow roadway across the bridge is flanked by a pavement on the downstream side only.
