Montford Bridge is a village in Shropshire, England, and also the name of the bridge in that village.

It lies on the River Severn and is close to the town of Shrewsbury. Most of the village is in the Montford parish, but some is covered by the Bicton parish.

Thomas Telford was appointed Surveyor of Public Works for Shropshire; his first bridge in the county was the Montford Bridge, which was built between 1790-2.[1]
