5/28 Cosford Bridge
(that part in Albrighton
G.V. C.P.)


Bridge. 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.
T.S.A.S., 2nd Series Xi (1899) pp.108-10.
