Tramway bridge. Built c1810 for Lydney and Lydbrook Canal Company (later Severn and Wye
Railway). Squared and coursed stone with ashlar parapet, set on a curved alignment with
voussoirs to semi-circular arch. A complete and rare example of a structure associated with a
horse-drawn tramway, preceding the introduction of steam-powered locomotion. The tramroad
was built to improve the export of Forest of Dean coal, both up the Wye to Hereford and to the
Thames Valley via the basin at Lydney and the Severn.
