Pont Minllyn
Pont Minllyn
A narrow two arched bridge that crosses the River Dyffi just south of Dinas Mawddwy. The bridge was built by Dr John Davies in the early 17th century. Today it stands as a pair of arches topped with turf, immediately beside the modern bridge. It is an appealing structure, and the first thing you notice is just how narrow it is. It would take a confident person to walk across the bridge without railings!
Note:
Despite the fact that the Cadw website lists Dinas Mawddwy as the location, the bridge is actually about a mile south of the village itself. If coming from the north west, do not take the turning into Dinas Mawddwy but stay on the A479 until the sign for Meirion Mill. Take the turn to the mill, and the bridge is immediately beside the modern road bridge.
