Probably C19 and one of a number of bridges of similar date S of Talybont, probably part of road improvements resulting from the canal trade and the need to link this with the industry and materials to south; this stretch of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal between Talybont and Brecon opened 1800.
Bridge of stone rubble over a mountain river. Wide basket arch spans the river; the arch has very narrow voussoirs and is slightly recessed; the parapet coping replaced with concrete; partly tiered abutments.
Listed as a fine early C19 mountain river bridge.
