  • Relisted "1922 Builth Wells" as "1839 Builth Wells" across the River Irfon at Builth Wells, Wales, United Kingdom. The former 1922 listing (identifying David Rowell & Co. as the builder) was a duplicate of the 1922 Llanstephan entry. The Builth Wells inventory entry has been modified to track the 1839 structure, more commonly identified with Builth Wells, that was a suspension bridge with a slightly droopy appearance. This 1839 structure was replaced in 1984 by a stayed footbridge known as the Rhosferig Bridge.
