The Iron Bridge is one of three bridges on the River Severn that are listed as grade I structures, including Bewdley Bridge and the Severn Bridge, which was opened in 1966.
In total, 31 bridges that cross the River Severn are listed, either grade I, II* or II.
The bridge became unsafe and was demolished in 1993 to make way for the new Jackfield Bridge.
Weight limit is 1 tonne, and only one vehicle allowed on the bridge at a time. Was operated by the Hampton Loade Community Trust at weekends during the summer provided the river level was suitable.
It has not been run recently (as of 2017) prompting speculation that it is permanently closed.
Four bridges are Scheduled Monuments, including The Iron Bridge, which are nationally important archaeological bridges.
Many reaches of the Severn are prone to severe flooding, prompting the design of many unique bridges to cope with this.
