Three bridges span the chasm above the Mynach river near Aberystwyth, strangely stacked one upon the next.

This is Pontarfynach, or “Devil’s Bridge”.

The original bridge dates back to sometime between 1075-1200, the middle bridge to 1753 and the upper span to 1902.

I've never heard the Welsh name before - translates as monk's bridge.

Just looked it up and whilst mynach is Welsh for monk [mynachdy means monastery] in this instance it means bridge on the river Mynach

Castell Coch and comet Neowise pinched off Facebook. This view, albeit during the day, is part of the 'Tongwynlais Loop' that we've been walking regularly since lockdown.
