Fodor's Review

At Aberystwyth Station you can hop on the steam-powered Vale of Rheidol Railway for an hour-long ride to the Devil's Bridge (Pont y Gwr Drwg, or, literally, "the Bridge of the Evil One"), where the rivers Rheidol and Mynach meet in a series of spectacular falls. Clamped between two rocky cliffs where a torrent of water pours unceasingly, there are actually three bridges, one built on top of the other. The oldest bridge is about 800 years old.
