An isolated remnant from the industrial past, the 'Aqueduct' gave its name to the village that grew up around it.
Built out of stone in 1792 by James Lowden, the single arch aqueduct was used to carry the western arm of the Shropshire Canal over the old Wellington to Bridgnorth turnpike road.
This stretch of the canal, in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, was the main means of transporting coal supplies to the ironworks at Coalbrookdale. The arrival of the railways in the 1860s heralded the demise of the canal.
