Crickhowell Bridge
Crickhowell Bridge
Viewed from the west side. The bridge carries the A4077 across the River Usk.
There has probably been a bridge of some sort here for centuries. In the 17th century, the bridge is believed to have had wooden piers. Its present appearance is much as it would have looked after it was rebuilt in 1706 (without the modern double yellow lines, obviously!)

A feature of the bridge are the triangular crenellations in the wall on both sides of the bridge, which give pedestrians a relatively comfortable place to stand and view the river, a few feet from the narrow roadway.

In the distance is the Bridge Inn.LinkExternal link
