Pont Minllyn Bridge, mid-Wales

Pont Minllyn Bridge– I’ve been wanting to photograph Pont Minllyn for a couple of years, but with Covid restrictions and the water level always seeming too deep to stand in the middle of the river, there was never a good time. However, earlier this year I managed to visit the bridge as the trees came into full leaf and the water level had dropped to a reasonable depth to stand in. I hope you like the image that I managed to get.

If you have never visited the site, the twin-arched packhorse bridge can be seen just south of Dinas Mawddwy where it crosses the River Dyfi. The bridge was built by Dr John Davies, rector of Mallwyd, in the early 17th century. Today it stands as a pair of arches topped with turf, the bridge is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and is listed Grade II for its historic interest.
