Spencer's Bridge is a stone arch bridge carrying the C8 across the River Lagan east of Moira. It is believed to have been built in 1843, replacing an earlier bridge on the site.

The bridge had three principle arches, and may have had up to five arches (with the remainder now buried or hidden by undergrowth)[1]. It carries two traffic lanes with no footpath provision.
