Description Description contains history

Coalport Bridge

As the first crossing over the river Severn at Coalport, Coalport Bridge was initially built around 1780, based of two timber framed arches on stone abutments and a pier. It was however destroyed by major flooding in 1795 and therefore rebuilt in 1799 using a mixture of wood, brick and cast-iron parts, however by 1817 it was failing again, so it was decided to build the bridge again using only iron parts.
