The viaduct was built in the 1860s across the Upper Furnace Pool to take the railway line from Lightmoor to Buildwas.
The Upper Furnace Pool, fed by a stream running through Loamhole Dingle, was constructed in 1658. It would have driven a large waterwheel powering the blast furnace of the Coalbrookdale Ironworks.
