Formally opened on 2nd July 1881, the bridge comprises five segmental arches of between 18.3m (60 feet) and 20.1m (66 feet) each, giving a total length of 104m (342 feet). It is constructed in granite masonry, with a polished granite parapet, and cost £25,000. The bridge was built after 32 people were killed in the Dee Ferry Boat Disaster of 1876.
