The Stone Arch Bridge:


none of those are really globally known, but there is one thing that is well known even though it is not architecture, the collapsed 35w bridge:

Telford's is undoubtedly the Iron Bridge, it was the fist cast iron bridge in the world and is the centrepiece of the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site.

We also have a bit of a natural landmark in the Wrekin, its a 1334 ft hill that rises from a flat plain and is quite striking because its all alone. There is a lot of local and regional folklore surrounding it and apparently helped inspire Tolkien when writing Lord of the Rings
