Cambrian Mountains: Devil's Bridge to Tregaron

Bwlch Nant Yr Arian

On the western edge of the Cambrian Mountains you'll find Devil's Bridge, which translated in Welsh is Pontarfynach, means 'The bridge on the Mynach'. 

Devil's Bridge is internationally famous for its waterfalls and narrow gauge Steam Railway. The village is situated at the head of the Rheidol Valley. Nearby Pen Pumlumon Fawr, at 752 metres (2,467ft) is the highest peak in Mid Wales and the area is well-known for its forest and mountain walks.

Two rushing streams, the Mynach and Rheidol, descend dramatically into a gorge below the village where over time three different bridges have been built, one on top of the other.

Visitors can enjoy several footpaths and walks to view the bridges and waterfalls. The bridge is at a point where the River Mynach drops 90 metres (300 ft) in 5 steps down a steep and narrow ravine before it meets the River Rheidol. The set of stone steps leading down to the lowest bridge at the waterfall are known as Jacob's Ladder.

Devil's Bridge has its own railway station on the historic narrow gauge Vale of Rheidol Railway, which opened between Aberystwyth and Devil's Bridge in 1902.
