Site Description A fine five arched bridge carrying what was once the main route into south Wales. The bridge was rebuilt by act of Parliament in 1818-19.
The river is spanned by three broad segmental arches of which the centre arch is the widest. Two smaller, but otherwise similar arches cross the floodplain to the east. The arches all have fine stone voussoirs or arch stones, and are divided by triangular stepped cutwaters. Raised bands run below the parapets, which are thought to have been rebuilt later in the nineteenth century.
