History

Probably built in the 2nd quarter of the C19 and shown on the 1842 Tithe map and 1871 Tremadog estate plan. The bridge crossed Y Cyt (The Cut), one of the principal drainage channels on the reclaimed Traeth Mawr.

Exterior

A single-span, wide single-carriageway bridge of coursed Gest stone abutments and segmental arch with voussoirs. On the upstream (NW) side the abutments incorporate slots for stop planks. On the downstream (SE) side the abutments are longer and incorporate moulded rebates. The bridge has a coped parapet which, on the upstream side, has a short return wall on the L (N), and has partially collapsed at the R (S) end. On the downstream side are simple square terminal piers.
