Pont Spwdwr, near Kidwelly, Carmarthenshire 

Originally uploaded for the Guesswhere UK Group.

This is Pont Spwdwr, 'Spudder's Bridge', possibly even the bridge of 'Rees Powdwr' in early accounts. It crosses the river Gwendraeth Fawr between Kidwelly and Trimsaran in Carmarthenshire. The old bridge shown in the foreground dates back to the at least the 15th century; I'm not sure if the exact date of construction is known. The new bridge behind carries the B4308 road and dates from the 20th century.
