A bridge added to the park in 1965 by Clough Williams-Ellis for Sir Vivyan Naylor-Leyland. It is integral to his new scheme of landscaping the main approach to the house, taking advantage of the disused railway line. The keystone each side carries the letters VNL 1965.
A reinforced concrete bridge of about 8m span, faced each side with small bricks, spanning the River Clwyd. At each side the brickwork is in the form of a three-centred arch. The architectural dressings are in reconstructed stone. These consist of a balustrade each side abutting cylindrical blocks capped by short obelisks, the quasi-structural facing arches which are slightly moulded and have little decorative keystones, and circular features in the spandrels. The parapets are carried out as wing walls at all four corners.
A picturesque bridge constituting an important element in Sir Clough Williams-Ellis's embellishment of the park of Nantclwyd Hall.
