Description

Roughly coursed rubble built single span bridge, a hemispherical arch, with modern concrete carriageway and kerb with iron railings cantilevered 0.3 M. out beyond underlying structure. It is sited immediately S. of the A5 road on the approach road from Bron Cadnant to Ty'n Llwyn. A single rubble arch-ring and inset rubble voussoired arch cross. Merely small pool collecting drainage from the meadow to the east and a few metres upstream of junction of Afonydd Cadnant and Merddwr.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of post medieval construction and transport. 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.
