The bridge was erected at the expense of Dr John Davies of Mallwyd, rector 1604-1634, famous Welsh scholar of the Welsh language and culture, and translator of the Bible, who undertook many works of improvement in the area..


The bridge is of rubble stonework. It consists of two segmental spans of radial rubble voussoirs with a regulating course, springing from rock abutments on to a centre water pier, which has cutwaters on each side. The E abutment has been reinforced with stone. The upper structure of the bridge has been lost, and is now grassed.
