A river bridge inscribed and dated PTGO 1776 on the east keystone, closely resembling the bridge at Pont Efail-y-plas 1½ km upstream. There are records of county repairs to this bridge and its approaches in 1777 and 1827.
The bridge is a single arch of about 10 m span in local limestone, about 4½m wide between parapets. The arch has a low semicircular form, the voussoirs diminishing in depth towards the crown. The common masonry is axe dressed and laid in irregular courses, with a slight turn-out at the north east. Flat coping to the parapets.
The parapets have been re-built to conform to a regularised approach with some loss of the original hump-backed profile, and the arch is now permanently reinforced with steel supporting rings. Minor repairs to the masonry.
A good county road bridge of the late C18.
