About 15 km outside Aberystwyth, in Wales, is a small village named Pontarfynach, meaning “the bridge on the Mynach”. As the name suggest, the village’s most prized attraction is a bridge.

The bridge is unusual as it consist of not one but three stacked bridges, each one built upon the previous bridge. The original and the lowest bridge was built in the 11th century. When that was thought to be unstable, a second stone bridge was built over the gorge directly atop the original bridge. That was in the mid-18th century. The original bridge was not demolished; rather it was used to support scaffolding during construction. The third and the final bridge is an iron bridge constructed in 1901. Again, the previous two bridges were left untouched, perhaps to preserve them.
