The 'Lloyds' Road

Work will start in September on realignment of this section of the The Lloyds - the road which runs from the Jackfield Bridge towards Coalport. This section of the road is very badly affected by mining subsidence. The main item of archaeological interest will be the wall of slag blocks which currently lines the road.

View looking west along the affected section.

The remdedial scheme will involve deep piling along both sides of the road. Some archaeological recording will be required before and during the work. The scheme has been devised by Telford and Wrekin Council but a contractor has yet to be appointed.
