Hilden Bridge (also known as Barbour's Bridge after the Barbour's factory that sits to the south) carries Hilden Road across the River Lagan at Hilden between Belfast and Lisburn. It is a stone and concrete twin-arch bridge, of late 19th century in origin. The road deck carries a single traffic lane.

The buildings database states that the bridge was likely widened in the mid-nineteenth-century and the parapet modified at this time altering much of the original character, and does not list the structure[1].
