About this spot
New Inn Dipping Bridge is a Grade 2 listed stone, humped back bridge dating from the 15th century. It stands on the old pilgrim route to St Davids. Originally an Inn, New Inn, stood adjacent the bridge and legend dictates that lone pilgrims who sought shelter for the night were robbed and murdered by the landlord. The holes in the parapets were used by local farmers to cast their sheep into the river for their seasonal dipping. It is a very picturesque location offering varying photographic opportunities depending on the flow rate of the river.
It is close to Merthyr Mawr Village and the possibility of a dual location shoot is worthy of consideration.
