Details

LONGDON UPON TERN Longdon Aqueduct (Aqueduct 1. on the Shrewsbury Canal) 5362 (Formerly listed 'The Aqueduct of the Shrewsbury canal') SJ 61NW 22/445 30.3.71

I

2. Built in 1795 and designed by Thomas Telford. Although said to be the first cast iron aqueduct to be built, the one at Holmes on the Derby Canal was completed one month before Telford's. Part of the Shropshire Union Canal, it carries the Shrewsbury Branch over the River Tern. It is an iron trough, square in section, supported on iron uprights with diagonal bracing. Along the south side of the trough is a tow path with plain iron railings. Sandstone and brick abutments at each end with round arches through, the east abutment has corner buttresses. The abutments appear to be the remains of the former aqueduct which was destroyed in floods early in 1795. Scheduled A.M.
