Penmachno Swirl

Penmachno Roman Bridge spans the Afon Machno close to the now disused Penmachno Woollen Mill. Although called a Roman Bridge there is nothing Roman about it... In fact, this single-arched bridge is likely to be early post-Medieval in date and it was constructed as a single-arched rubble masonry for packhorses to cross over the river.

The river near the bridge is deceptively deep, even when like in this image, the water level is quite low. It’s a location that I intend to revisit when Autumn takes hold, and the water level rises to give it a more dramatic look.
