SN8647 : Pontnewydd bridge & church near Llanwrtyd Wells

taken 12 years ago, near to Llanwrtyd, Powys, Great Britain

Pontnewydd bridge & church near Llanwrtyd Wells
Pontnewydd bridge & church near Llanwrtyd Wells
There is little more here than this bridge and church. Strangely, the map names this area as Llanwrtyd, whilst Llanwrtyd Wells is over a mile to the southeast.
This would not be a problem, except that all the signs in the area pointing to Llanwrtyd Wells omit the "Wells".

Update: Former resident Mike Price writes to tell me that this church and its tiny parish was indeed the original Llanwrtyd. Also that "Llanwrtyd" is derived from the church being near a ford that the bridge has replaced.
