Wolverhampton's Listed Buildings

Lock Street High Level Railway Bridge

Lock Street

Listing: Railway underbridge to high level railway line. 1848, widened to east side c1870. Girder on east elevation: Thomas Perry and Sons Highfields Foundry 1848. Included for group value.

Comment: It seems reasonable to assume that when the listing says "Included for Group Value" the value is not the bridge's aesthetic qualities but its importance as part of a whole collection of related railway structures, all within this area, which, singly and together, tell an important story in the history of British railways.
