Crickhowell Bridge
A medieval bridge, possibly wooden, was recorded in surveys of 1538 and 1609, and was rebuilt as a stone arch bridge in 1706. The Royal Commission of Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales says that the bridge was widened in 1810 and that "When the 'inner bypass' of the town was built in 1828-30, the bridge was modified to contain 13 arches on the upstream side and 12 on the downstream side. The present structure is the longest stone bridge in Wales."
