Road bridge over the Usk, now private, of uncertain date, said to be c. 1600, widened on W side c. 1680.
Large rubble stone bridge of four broad segmental arches with cut stone voussoirs on elongated hexagonal piers, the cutwaters carried up as three pedestrian refuges on the E side. The four arches are two of 8.5m (28 ft), one of 8m (26 ft) and one of 4.5m (15 ft). The widened W side has arches with stone voussoirs dying into the cutwaters, which are chamfered off below parapet level, except the N one carried up as pedestrian refuge. The E parapet is of squared stone with flat copings, and joins to N a stretch of stone wall with basket-arched doorway in pedimented surround of cut tooled stone, with stone voussoirs. The W parapet has rougher coping stones. At the S end a big single stone pier with wrought iron gate.
Graded II* for its exceptional interest as a fine large river bridge probably of C17 date, closely associated with an important historic estate.
