The monument consists of the remains of a bridge, dating to the post-medieval period. Pont Dafydd is a stone-built, single arched bridge with rough parapets dating to AD1630. It provided a crossing point for the former main route across the River Clwyd, but diversion of the river means the bridge is no longer used.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of medieval or post-medieval construction techniques and transportation systems. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques.
The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
