Medieval and ca1835; double road bridge over River Alun and leat to Felin Isaf. The older bridge, to S, is that over mill-leat with rough stone arch and medieval stone tower; part of the Close Wall, also built over leat, adjoins. Tower is of rubble stone, apparently a sluice gate, square with vent loop in each side and rough stone barrel vault within.
River bridge to N has cut-stone single arch and rubble ramped parapet and was probably rebuilt in 1834 or 1835 after floods had destroyed its predecessor.
