History

Built in the late C19 to connect new Cadnant Park suburban housing to Bangor Road, and shown on the 1889 Ordnance Survey.

Exterior

A single carriageway 3-bay viaduct over a deep railway cutting, of rubble stone with tooled dressings. It has tall piers with continuous chamfers to round arches. Above the central arch is a blank shield in each face. The parapet has round-backed tooled copings and is raised above the central arch. Terminal piers (partly overgrown at the time of survey) are rectangular, and the copings have been removed. Rubble-stone walls are attached at each end.

Reasons for Listing

Listed as a fine C19 road bridge of distinctive character, and for its historical interest as part of the late C19 suburban development of Conwy.
