A medieval gatehouse guarded the entrance of Warkworth Bridge at its south end. It is built of stone and has an archway through which the road runs. It was probably built in the late 14th or early 15th century. This is one of only two fortified medieval bridges in Britain; the other is in Monmouth. This is a Grade II Listed Building and a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
