Probably an C18 bridge but rebuilt in early C19 and shown in its present form on the 1839 Llanfedw Tithe map. In detail it is similar to Cefn Mably Bridge.
Single-carriageway 2-span bridge in vernacular style, principally of snecked rubble stone. Segmental arches have fine arch rings, with a string course above the arches on the upstream side. The central pier has V-shaped cutwaters with shallow offsets, rising the full height of the parapet and defining refuges. The low parapet has a flat stone coping and is splayed out at the ends above the splayed abutments. The deck is laid with tarmac and is ramped from N to S.
A well-preserved early C19 road bridge, one of a pair with Cefn Mably Bridge.
