There is no direct dating evidence for the bridge, but it is thought to be C16. Its proximity to the important gentry house of Plas Dol-y-moch may give a context for its construction: the house has late C16 origins, but was extended in 1643.
A fine 4-arched bridge. Rubble construction with wide segmental arches with arch rings and rough-dressed voussoirs. Rubble cutwaters to both sides with contemporary stone benches to central refuges, and low rubble parapets with large original coping stones. The parapet walls curve outwardly at both ends. Slightly cambered tarmacked roadway.
Listed grade II* as a fine early bridge, exceptionally well-preserved in its original, un-widened state.
