Late C18 canal bridge on the Monmouthshire Canal which was a prime factor in the industrial development of the Gwent Valleys.

Drapers Lock is one of the Llantarnam flight of three locks S of Cwmbran.
Slightly hump-backed canal bridge, built into canal lock to N. Rubblestone with single segmental arch of dressed sandstone voussoirs and horizontal parapets with flat coping. Abutments splay outwards on each side to square piers.
Included for historic transport interest as a late C18 canal bridge retaining its character.
