This narrow bridge carries an unclassified public road over the Pow Burn, 800m NE of Halls of Airth steading. Of single-arched form and stone construction, it is deteriorating, suffers from distortion through 'squatting', and displays evidence of a complex building history, as well as numerous mason's marks of different forms. What are apparently the remains of at least one earlier bridge, and possibly also a paved ford, are also evident nearby.

Visited by Mr P Pritchard and Mr Bob Ross (Nautical Archaeology Society), Mr D Atkinson (Headland Archaeology) and Mr R Mowat (RCAHMS), 23 June 2007.
