1846 Joseph Locke designed the original bridge with three 100-foot cast iron girders supported on stone-faced land arches with two stone-faced river piers.

1908 Due to concerns over its structural integrity, the bridge was rebuilt using the existing piers and abutments by the Horsley Co to a design by the London and South Western Railway's chief engineer, John Wykeham Jacomb-Hood.
