taken 1 year ago, near to Gilwern, Monmouthshire/Sir Fynwy, Great Britain

Ty-Gwyn bridge ( No 102), Mon and Brec canal
Ty-Gwyn bridge ( No 102), Mon and Brec canal
The elegant Georgian stone bridges, some distorted after years of heavy industrial use, are a key feature of this delightful canal, and all are listed. The canal came into the ownership of the Great Western Railway in 1880 and evidence of that can be seen here with the use of bullhead rail as strengthening to hold up the arch. Distortion clearly shows on this side.
