The bridge carries the A4133 between Great Witley and Drotwich Spa. In the distance is Holt Lock.

Holt Fleet Bridge is also known as Holt Bridge. It is a cast-iron arch bridge with a span of 150 feet (46 metres) and was designed by Thomas Telford. The bridge opened in 1828. Some strengthening was applied in 1928 by encasing the upper and lower parts of each rib and some of the diagonal struts above them in concrete. The road deck was rebuilt in reinforced concrete and widened at the same time.
This aesthetically pleasing structure is Grade II listed.
