History

Mid/later C18, shown on a 1769 map of Cilcennin parish. Widened downstream (W) probably in early C19.

Exterior

Rubble built bridge of two segmental arches, recessed on the downstream side: stone voussoirs. The S arch is wider and lower. Broad triangular cutwater on upstream side between the arches: slight projection on widened side probably represents former cutwater. Long parapet walls with both slate and stone-slab coping, continuing as retaining walls, splayed to NE to contain river bank.

Reasons for Listing

Mid/later C18 bridge which retains its distinctive character.
