Pont y Ceunan bridge
Pont y Ceunant, Nant Ffrancon north Wales, UK
Spanning the river Ogwen near the point where the minor road through Nant Ffrancon meets the A 5 at Tyn-y-maes
Constructed on the course of the so-called "old road" along the remote Ogwen Valley, an improvement by the Penrhyn Estate in 1790-1 of what Thomas Pennant had described as "the most dreadfull horsepath in Wales". This road was effectively superseded as the main through route along the valley by the building of the turnpike road (the line of the present A5) on its eastern side in 1802. The Afon Ogwen here forms the boundary with the Llandygai community.
Roughly coursed rubblestone with stone-on-edge coping. Twin arches, both round-headed with voussoirs and arch-rings.
