2/87 Wrenbury Bridge
Road bridge. c.1790. By Thomas Telford. Single span bridge.
Timber. A wooden platform formed of planks laid between timber beams
spans the river at the level of the bank. This is hinged at its
northern edge and raised and lowered by a counterbalancing beam weight
which is supported by two posts of square sections on the northern
bank which carry two horizontal beams with chains to their southern
end connecting with the platform of the bridge and a weight to their
northern end. Iron tension rods run from the vertical beams to the
ends of the horizontal beams. This bridge has a C20 mechanical crank
to raise and lower the bridge. There are 3 such bridges in the parish.
