SX84NW Millcombe Bridge
Road bridge over stream (The Gara). Probably C17, widened in C18 and again
Local slate rubble with dressed slate arch-ring. Small single span bridge.
The upstream west side had dressed slate segmental arch on straight jambs
with chamfered imposts. The east downstream side had a similar arch but
built of stone rubble and the jambs have no imposts. There is a small flood
arch to the north with a corbelled arch. Parapets with concrete coping.
Judging from the masonry joints under the arch it seems that the original
brick at the centre was a narrow pack-horse bridge which was widened on the
west upstream side probably in the C19 and on the downstream side sometime
in the C19. The floodarch was built when the C18 on the west side.
