About

Monnow Bridge in Monmouth, Wales, is the only remaining mediaeval fortified river bridge in Great Britain with its gate tower still standing in place.

Originally built with a portcullis, it's primary use was for defence, but over the years it developed into a toll collection point,, a jail and even a home!

Tours are available of the gatehouse above the bridge. Please contact Monmouth Shire Hall for more details.
