Building Class: Transport
Location: The bridge carries the High Street over the Afon Cegin at the S end of the village.
Traditional County: Caernarfonshire
Probably constructed in the C18 or early C19, to carry the Bangor to Tregarth road via the Cegin valley.
Built of local stone rubble. A single arched span, founded on rock on each side, where the river runs through rapids below a stone sluice, perhaps for a former mill. The arch has slightly inset voussoirs with a regulating course above. The spandrels and bowed flush parapets are coped with a sharply keeled flush coping both sides.
Included as a very well preserved bridge in a spectacular location.
