Cosford Bridge

G.V.

II

Bridge over River Worfe. Circa 1780. Traditionally attributed to Telford. Sandstone ashlar. Single span segmental arch with raised keystone, flat string course, plain parapet, quadrant plan. The bridge is said to have replaced an earlier packhorse bridge, which was not demolished until c.1870; it appears to have been widened on the south (downstream) side, possibly following the erection of the nearby pumping station (Cosford Supply Works q.v.). Cosford Bridge is now little used following the diversion of the Holyhead Road to the south in the late 1960s.

The asset was previously listed twice also at List entry 1053663. That entry was removed from the List on 28 February 2017.

This entry was subject to a Minor Amendment on 28 February 2017.
