The location of the bridge is based on the discovery of two parallel beam-slots to the east of the 'tower'. No corresponding structural evidence was found at the bailey end of the bridge, although the roadway leading to the bridge was clearly identified as an area of packed clay with small stone and crushed pottery. A section through the ditch in this area did not find evidence of timber supports for the bridge and it is assumed that these simply rested on the bedrock.
