Soaring high above the Coalport Road and railway line, the Lee Dingle Bridge was built circa 1859 to carry coal on a tramway from the Meadow Pit Colliery (on the West side) to the Blists Hill Ironworks (on the East).
By the early 19th century it was no longer in use for its original purpose. However, it would have been used by locals as a convenient crossing point over the Coalport road and railway line.
Access was finally blocked off in the 1960s and the rails lifted, but it remains very much as it was when it was first built with distinctive wrought iron lattice work.
A pedestrian footbridge across what is now Legges Way/Coalport Road affords a good view of the original bridge.
