Details

DAWLEY HAMLETS LIGHTMOOR ROAD SJ 60 NE Former canal bridge 31/10002 about 130 metres south of Methodist Chapel II Canal bridge. Circa 1790 to early C19. Stretcher bond red brick round arch on dressed sandstone plinth forming a barrel vaulted tunnel, about 5 metres long, through bank of spoil. Stone rubble and slag abutments at either end. The bridge now has a footpath above, but may have originally carried a colliery plateway over the line of the Shropshire Union Canal (completed in circa 1790). The 1882 OS map indicates that the canal was replaced by a small mineral line. The bridge probably connected Dawley Parva Colliery to Lightmoor Iron, Brick and Tile Works.
