Official Heritage Listing Information and Findings

Listed At: Grade II


List Entry Number: 1209919

Bridge over River Severn. Largely 1870, but parts of earlier structures remain. Main arch is cast-iron, flanked by stone faced brick arches and a causeway of 25 brick arches to north, 6 to south. Lower section of causeway on NE side is late C18 brick, with stone springers to the arches. Early C20 panelled brick parapet above, in imitation of C19 parapet which remains to NW. 3 stone faced arches incorporate iron gates giving access to spiral cast iron stairways to river banks on west side. Iron arch has gentle curve with interlaced circles to parapet and traceried circles in the spandrels. Shield with date and initials S.T.B. on spandrels at each side. Bridge is the third on this site, the first, of 1775, thought to have been designed by Thomas Farnolls Pritchard. Brick with an iron centre, it was destroyed in 1795 and replaced in 1806. Remains of both these earlier bridges seem to be incorporated in the present causeway construction.
