Description

The monument consists of the remains of a bridge, dating to the post-medieval period. St Asaph bridge is a restored late 17th century bridge over the River Elwy. It has five arches, with triangular buttresses either side of the central arch, and a moulded cornice below the parapet.

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.
