A probably early C19 bridge which appears to be as built except for minor repairs.
Bridge built of local limestone rubble with dressed voussoirs to the segmental arch ring. Narrow single span bridge which was originally more hump-backed but has been flattened out by the addition of a stone causeway at either end. Repaired parapets with cock-and-hen stones. Crosses the Kenson River and is half situated in Llancarfan Community.
Included for its special interest as an unaltered bridge of the turnpike era.
