Ditch which once provided the outer defences of Overmonnow, and through which waters of the River Monnow would have been diverted in times of threat.
Ditch which once provided the outer defences of Overmonnow, and through which waters of the River Monnow would have been diverted in times of threat. There was probably a bridge here in the fouteenth century when the outer defences were strengthened against the threat of Welsh insurgency and to protect the increasingly populous suburb of Overmonnow. It might be expected that the first bridge would have been a timber one which could easily be removed and that the permanent stone one would only have been built in less troubled times. The present bridge appears seventeenth century in character and has undergone various repairs and rebuildings.
