14/108 Stoke Bridge
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.
