An early C19 bridge, possibly built by Thomas Telford, County Surveyor for Shropshire from 1788. It is shown as single-carriageway on the 1873 Ordnance Survey, and was later widened, perhaps re-using the original masonry.
A single-span bridge of double-carriageway with footway. Its original S side is ashlar with a rusticated arch between slightly battered abutments, and a coped parapet above a raised band. The parapet is splayed outward on each side to square terminal piers. The N side has similar detail but has been rebuilt.
Listed for its special interest as a fine early C19 road bridge.
