Built c1880 to carry the former Bangor to Bethesda Branch of the London and North-Western Railway across the deep valley of the Afon Cegin. It is now a footpath.
The viaduct is of rock-faced coursed stone, and is laid out on a very distinct curve extending for some 120m. It consists of eight arches with a broad central semi-eliptical skewed arch having 5-ring dry-toothed blue brick voussoirs. The central arch is flanked by narrower semi-circular straight arches, four on one side and three on the other. A margin-dressed rock faced string course forms the base of a similar parapet of 5 courses, coped with hog-backed stone.
Included as a fine example of railway engineering, of special interest as laid out on a curve.
