Notes on the Geography of The United Kingdom: Ironbridge: Photo 3
Arthur Young came by in 1776, while the work was yet to begin. He wrote, "Mr. Darby has undertaken to build a bridge of one arch of 120 feet, of cast iron." As built, the arch was reduced to 100 feet. A flood in 1795 washed away the old wood and stone bridges but not this one. The south abutment arch, however, dates from 1821, after ground movement forced the demolition of the original south abutment. .
