SN4407 : Bridge over disused railway at Pont Newydd

near to Carway, Carmarthenshire/Sir Gaerfyrddin, Great Britain

Bridge over disused railway at Pont Newydd
Bridge over disused railway at Pont Newydd
The railway up the Gwendraeth Fawr valley is no more, but the road still has to cross it. There are three marked bridges at Pont Newydd: this one where the road crosses the railway, another where the road crosses the river, and a third where the railway crosses the river - though I didn't see that one. There now seems to be a maintained path alongside the former railway. At Pont Newydd you'd be forgiven for thinking there was an overgrown canal, but if you look through the weeds you can see submerged rusting rails. This is a bit of a surprise, since railways usually have such good drainage.
