Late C18 canal bridge on the Monmouthshire Canal which was a prime factor in the industrial development of the Gwent Valleys. Built by Thomas Dadford Junior, 1792-9, the canal ran between Newport and Pontnewynydd, with a branch between Crindau and Crumlin. Shop Lock is one of the Ty Coch flight of seven locks S of Cwmbran.
Hump-backed canal bridge, built into canal lock to N. Rubblestone with single segmental arch of dressed sandstone voussoirs and parapets with flat coping. Abutments splay outwards on each side to square piers, the NW side returning along the lock and incorporating two stone seats. Another seat has been built into the NW parapet.
Included for historic transport interest as a late C18 canal bridge retaining its character.
