History

Probably late C17 (a stone built into the parapet is dated 1661).

Exterior

A 5-arched span (including 2 flood-arches) of roughly coursed slate rubble, rougher to parapet, which is carried on the projecting hood-mould above each of the voussoir arches. Cut-waters between the principal arches are taken up into the parapet.

Reasons for Listing

An exceptionally good example of a late C17 masonry bridge, and one of a series of similar early bridges crossing the Rivers Dee and Alwen.

Scheduled Ancient Monument, Ref. Me 29.
