Chirk Bridge


Bridge. Circa 1798 by Thomas Telford with later repairs and alterations. Yellow sandstone ashlar. Single segmental arch, projecting keystone and rusticated voussoirs struck through to soffit. Flat string course, pilasters, coped parapet and rectangular corner piers. The contract for construction was awarded to John Simpson of Shrewsbury for which he was paid £1,093. Minor repairs were carried out by Thomas Stanton and Edward Haycock in 1831 and 1844 respectively. The bridge was widened in reinforced concrete during the 1920s but was faced with the original masonry. Spans the River Ceiriog.
