The Dipping Bridge ll by taramara The Dipping Bridge ll by taramara
At the entrance to Merthyr Mawr village is the 'Dipping Bridge' built in the 15th century with holes in the parapets where farmers once pushed reluctant sheep into the River Ogmore for a seasonal dip! At the side of the bridge once stood an Inn where the landlord would rob and murder travellers en route to St. David’s shrine.

Good shot. How did you manage that? Again, like Ogmore castle, always full of people and hard to gret a tranquil shot like this ;)
