Old Llanrhystud Bridge photo description

Originally built of stone with an arch spanning the River Wyre, the humpback bridge was later replaced and its course altered and widened to accommodate modern transport. In the photo we see Severn young children sitting on the side wall with feet dangling over the river while playing possibly fishing the waters below from the old village bridge, with distant views of trees up the river, Moelivor Terrace and houses opposite the Black Lion Hotel. The black and white image suggests it was taken around 1940s.

  1. I was born and grew up in Llanrhystud,and many a time i sat on the old bridge with my friends,

  2. How lovely to see this picture again, I remember my dad (Tom Jones who lived in Tegfan) telling us that he was one of the lads on the bridge. Also remember getting off of the bus
    when I was 3 years old by the pub near there during the war, we were on our way to stay with my grandparents in Tegfan.
