Telfords Bridge (Bewdley)

Telfords Bridge is the name by which the lovely bridge over the River Severn at Bewdley is known.

The bridge was designed by the famous engineer Thomas Telford, and built in 1798 at a cost of 11,000.

It leads from the bottom of Load Street, the principal street of Bewdley, which was formerly a cul de sac.

Beside the bridge, which has three arches, is the riverside walk known as Severnside.

An earlier bridge, dating from 1498, was a little downstream.
