Description

The monument consists of the remains of a bridge, dating to the medieval or post-medieval period. A bridge has been documented over the Clwyd at Rhuddlan from 1278, with work documented in 1372 and 1383. The present bridge carries a tablet with the date 1595, but it has been remodelled in 1959 to allow a widened roadway to be carried. It consists of a stone bridge with two unequal arches.

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.
