The monument consists of a fine road bridge of rubble construction, with four arches, and triangular cutwaters dating to the post-medieval period. It carries the Bala-Corwen road over the River Dee. The primary, downstream bridge probably dates to the second-half of the 17th century; this was doubled in width on the upstream side probably in the mid or third-quarter of the 18th century.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of post-medieval building and transport. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
