Bridges at Devils Bridge

Spanning the River Mynach in north Ceredigion are three bridges, one built upon the other at various times throughout history.

The first bridge was built during Norman times, the second during the 18th century and the third was built during the 20th century. The River Mynach drops over 90 meters over 5 waterfalls underneath the bridges here and you can venture down into the ravine via what is called locally as Jacob’s Ladder – a series of steep steps leading down the side of the valley.

In the Village, which is very popular during the summer season you can find tea rooms, a restaurant and a village stores.

There is a great Welsh legend about how the first bridge was built, see the second to last story on our myths and legends of Wales page…
