History

Said to be a packhorse bridge, probably of C18 date perhaps with earlier origins.

Exterior

Roughly squared and coursed rubble with a parapet of flat stones. The single-span bridge is skewed and is attached to a stone wall which runs along the N side of Cymau Road on the W side of the bridge, and to a stone wall running along the N side of the river on the E side. The SE side of the bridge terminates with a stone pier.

Reasons for Listing

Listed as a good example of a C18 skewed stone bridge.

Scheduled Ancient Monument No. F132.
