Only the 2 Eyton locks and the bridges on the Wappenhall to Shrewsbury section were widened. Red brick with low pitched hipped slate roof with wide eaves. Two storeys. Four bays. Modern casements in full height round-arched recesses with plain stone imposts. The entrance bay to right of centre is narrower and has modern brick porch. The ground floor windows have segmental arched openings. At first floor level the arches have been infilled with new brick around new casements, and walls have blind arches. Modern brick wing at rear.
