Bridge. Dated 1826 with late Cl9 and c.1930 alterations. Painted cast
iron span, red brick abutments, corrugated decking, and concrete and
steel balustrade. Single span consisting of 4 cast segmental ribs with
pierced spandrels and lattice girders at right-angles adjoining abutments
at ends; probably late C19 red brick abutments with parapets; c.1930
concrete balustrade with steel balusters and rail. Date cast in central

during the period when Thomas Telford was County Surveyor (1797-1834).
The bridge spans the Cound Brook. V.C.H., Vol. VIII, p.16.
