5/9 Atcham Bridge
Road bridge. Dated 1769-71, by John Gwynne of Shrewsbury. Grey sandstone
ashlar. Humped-back bridge of 7 graded round arches with banded rusticated
soffits and voussoirs, triple keystones consisting of fluted outer stones
flanking central stone with vermiculated rustication, and separated by
breakwaters with concave caps; outer pedestrian arches with banded rusti-
cated surrounds and keystones with vermiculated rustication; string above
arches; coped parapet ramped up to central pedimented datestones and
buttressed by small carved scrolls at approaches where lower parapets
curve out to pyramidal end-piers. Evidence of former railings flanking
central parapet datestones. Lugged half-H datestones inscribed: "THIS
BRIDGE/Was erected at the Expence of the County/MDCCLXXXI/JOHN GWYNN Arch".
This bridge no longer carries the A5 as a new concrete bridge was built
immediately to the north in 1929. The bridge spans the River Severn.
