Chetwynd Bridge (that part in Alrewas), Tamworth Road, Fradley and Streethay / Alrewas / Edingale - Lichfield

Chetwynd Bridge crosses the River Tame south east of Alrewas village. Designed by the County Surveyor Joseph Potter, it was manufactured in 1824 by the Coalbrookdale Company. Configured as three spans of cast iron arches with two stone cutwaters, the cast iron balustrades have become distorted by corrosion, misaligned and are generally in poor condition. Whilst they have no vehicle constraining capacity, remedial repairs are urgently required to ensure that they remain secure, upright and intact. Trial repairs to establish a repairs methodology are due to be carried out during summer 2020.
