The B711 crosses the River Teviot about two miles south of Hawick, immediately after turning off of the A7. The bridge is a two stone arch structure, just about wide enough for two cars to pass, but incorporates neither footpaths nor refuges. The facings of the bridge are remarkably plain, enlivened only by a flat pier rising between the two arches and a slim cornice line following the level of the roadway. The parapets appear to have been repaired in 2013, and are now capped with some contrasting red coping stones, which look slightly out of place against the grey-brown stonework below.
The age of the bridge is uncertain, and whilst a crossing has probably stood here for a number of centuries, the current bridge appears to be mid to late 19th century in date.
Immediately to the east of the bridge, the B711 terminates on the A7 at a simple give-way T junction. The river bank, particularly to the north, is lined with trees and this can make it slightly difficult to turn out of the road when the A7 is busy.
