Cantlop Bridge



Bridge. 1818, by Thomas Telford. Dressed red and grey sandstone abutments with ashlar dressings; painted cast iron span and railings. Slightly curved and ramped abutments with chamfered quoins, string courses, and moulded cornices; single segmental span consisting of four lattice ribs; railings with dograil, dogbars and shaped end balusters. Old photographs show a cast iron plate above the centre of the arch. "THOMAS TELFORD ESQR/ ENGINEER / 1818", but this was not visible at time of survey (March 1985).

Thomas Telford was county surveyor from 1787 to 1834; this section of the Shrewsbury-Acton Burnell road was turn-piked in 1797. It is also said that the bridge was built in 1812 to the designs of Thomas Telford. The bridge spans the Cound Brook.
