Crossings related to the A451

Stourport Bridge is a bridge crossing the River Severn on the A451 in the Worcestershire town of Stourport-on-Severn. It was built in 1870 and refurbished in 2007. As the river is prone to flooding here, the crossing extends to the north on brick arches to cross the flood plain.

History

The bridge is the third to be built on this site, the first was built in 1775 and destroyed by the weather in 1795, a winter which took out many of the other bridges in the area. A second replacement bridge was built in 1806.
