"The bridge, a fine stone structure of five arches, has its centre keystones ornamented by the chisel of the Hon Mrs Damar, with allegorical represntations of Thames and Isis, the former on the lower side of the bridge, representing a bold classical head, with fishes swimming from between the flowing beard, and the latter, on the upper side, exhibiting a beuatiful female head, the ideal of the goddess Isis."
