The bridge depicted here, with its great bastion-gateway, an outlier to the now demolished town wall, is over the Monnow at the lower end of the town. It is the only surviving example in Britain of a medieval fortified bridge with the defensive gate actually standing on the bridge. This painting also shows details of buildings adjacent to the town which are not shown in other known pictures of the period. It is a fascinating and valuable addition to the Museum's collection of local works of art.
