Twin-arched road bridge of rubble. C18 or earlier; repairs were recorded in 1830. Segmental arches separated by triangular full-height cutwater on upstream side. Slight camber to parapet following the rise of the road. The rubble parapets plays out to the N on the upstream side where it has recently been extensively repaired. On the S side, the bridge parapet continues for some 4m towards the new road where it adjoins a modern rubble dwarf wall to curve around flanking the new road to the W. On the downstream side, the S bridge parapet terminates at the junction with a section of C19 wall which steps up. Adjoining wall and gatepiers form entrance to Caerynwch.
An early twin-arched road bridge retaining its character.
