Over Bridge is a single span stone arch bridge spanning the West Channel of the River Severn near Gloucester. It links Over to Alney Island. Built by Thomas Telford between 1825 and 1828, it remained in use for traffic until 1975. The arch spans 150 feet (46 metres), and was based on Jean-Rodolphe Perronet's 1774 design for a bridge over the River Seine at Neuilly. It combines both an elliptical profile over most of the soffit with a segmental profile at its faces. This feature is known as a corne de vache.
This is the last bridge over the Severn before the Severn Crossings, and the most downstream free crossing, although the Severn Bridge has free access for pedestrians, cyclists and mopeds and, as previously stated, there is no vehicular access to Over Bridge.
