Aberffraw

Once the seat of royalty, Aberffraw was home to the Welsh princes who ruled Gwynedd until about 1300. Nothing remains of the Llys, or Court above ground, but parts of it are thought to lie under the modern village, Hen Bont Aberffraw or Aberffraw old bridge, crosses the Afon Ffraw, built in 1731 by Sir Arthur Owen the bridge was part of the main road into Aberffraw. The single span stone bridge is a particularly well preserved example of an early road bridge. Now a scheduled ancient monument, it can be crossed on foot, but isn't open to vehicles. It was superceded by a larger bridge just upstream in 1932, which has itself since been rebuilt.
