Former tramroad and railway bridge over Moor Lane, Nottage
Former tramroad and railway bridge over Moor Lane, Nottage
A view of the east facing side of the grade II listed structure known locally as Cuckoo Bridge. The account of it on the British Listed Buildings website (at LinkExternal link ) indicates that it is a combination of two bridges: a tramroad bridge of the Dyffryn Llynfi and Porthcawl Railway built in the 1820s, and a railway bridge ‘built against the west side of the tramroad bridge’ at a later date. The photo shows the tramroad bridge side of the structure, though it may be noted that the parapet – which, like the railway bridge, is blue brick – was not originally present.

The structure fell out of use with the closure of the railway line between Pyle and Porthcawl in the 1960s.
