Scheduled ancient monument
The bridge was constructed in the 14th or 15th century and comprises six arches of various heights and widths, the middle three of which span the river.
Teston Bridge is built of coursed rag-stone with ashlar capping stones to the parapets. The bridge is narrow, only wide enough to permit traffic to pass in one direction at a time and the parapets feature pedestrian refuges continued up from the cutwaters on each side. It carries the B2163 road, which is crossed on the level by the Medway Valley Line just west of the bridge. The crossing was the site of Teston Crossing Halt, which was open from 1909–59.
