Twin-arched road bridge, late C17 and later, though perhaps earlier in origin; Edward Lhwyd in 1699 mentions the bridge and ascribes it to Howell Saer (fl 1468).


Rubble road bridge of two elliptical arches of roughly 11m and 4m in span, the larger arch spanning the river and the smaller being a flood arch.; dressed voussoirs recessed slightly beneath arch-rings of narrow stones. Small triangular rubble cutwaters to the upstream side, that on the SE (Bro Machno) side only surviving in fragment. The roadway and parapets rise to the centre of the larger arch; slab coping to the latter.

Reasons for Listing

A twin-arched vernacular bridge of much character and with early origins.
