This bridge serves a footpath and bridleway across a channel of the River Weaver, in an interesting area between Dutton Locks and Dutton Viaduct, near Acton Bridge, south of Frodsham, Cheshire.

Deigned by John Arthur Saner and built 1915–1919. It is a rare surviving UK example of a laminated timber arch bridge.

The arches are formed from 11 wooden plies, each approximately 2 3/4" thick and 8" wide.
