History

Probably late C18 or early C19. A bridge is shown at this location on the Tithe Map of 1838.

Exterior

A single-arch semi-circular bridge of about 10 m span. Uncoursed masonry in local slate. Voussoirs about 500 mm in height. There is a boldly projecting keystone and an extrados corbel course each side.

The parapets are slightly out-turned on all four ends. Flat copings jointed with iron cramps. On the Welsh side the parapets abut the walls of an adjacent garden and the churchyard.

Reasons for Listing

A fine bridge of simple late vernacular character.
