History

Original bridge was of some 3m in width, widened by 1.5 to 2m on W side.

Bridge spans former county boundary and is now partly in Newcastle Emlyn and partly in Llandyfriog, Ceredigion District. The bridge is illustrated on corner of a 1773 map of Vaughan estates among Cawdor papers in Carms Rec Office. Undergoing repairs at time of inspection (Jan 1990).

Uncertain date, C18 widened in C19, but possibly including some earlier work.

W Side has string courses over arches, stepped over centre arch, square piers covering former cutwaters. Rubble stone parapets
