STOKE UPON TERN C.P. STOKE UPON TERN SJ 6227-6327 SJ 63676 27846 14/108 Stoke Bridge - - II

Bridge. Dated 1789, parapets heightened in the mid-C19. Dressed red sandstone (almost of ashlar quality) with tooled dressed red sandstone parapet. Brick soffits. Humped-back shape. Central segmental arch with stepped extrados and raised keystone and pair of smaller flanking keyed segmental arches. Parapet raised with large dressed blocks. Square end piers. The bridge was paid for by local subscription. In a report in 1826 Thomas Stanton recommended raising the height of the parapets. Edward Haycock, the County Surveyor, repeated the recommendation in 1837. The work appears to have been carried out some time later. The bridge carries the Hodnet-Stoke upon Tern road over the River Tern. A. Blackwall: Historic Bridges of Shropshire, Shropshire Libraries and Shropshire County Council.
