Bridge over River Worfe. 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.
