Ashlar to the main part of the bridge and to the parapet walls, squared and coursed rubble causeways with ashlar parapet. Stone copings to parapet walls. Heavily buttressed and with iron ties. In 1726 the Staffordshire Sessions appointed a commission to consider building a stone bridge in place of existing wooden one.
