II

Canal bridge. Circa 1830. Thomas Telford and Alexander Easton, engineers. Dressed red sandstone with tooled dressings. Elliptical skew arch with voussoirs and raised keystones. Humped-back shape with string course and parapet with square end piers and rounded coping. Slightly battered and curved abutments. Cast-iron corner posts on towpath side with grooves caused by rope haulage. Oval cast-iron number plate to south.
