History

A simple bridge built over a drainage ditch for the Tremadoc Tramway of c1845, which carried iron ore from nearby Llidiart Ysbytty to Porthmadog harbour. From the late 1850s it was incorporated into the slate-carrying Gorseddau horse-drawn tramway, which became locomotive powered in the 1870s and operated until the 1890s. It is now a footpath.

Exterior

Effectively a short culvert, the entrances of which have round arches with freestone voussoirs, but mainly concealed by vegetation.

Reasons for Listing

Listed for its special interest as one of the few surviving structures in Porthmadog associated with the former mineral railways supplying the port.
