Commins Coch, Powys

Commins Coch is a small village on the A470 in the county of Powys in Wales. Commins Coch is notable for the narrow bridge set at right angles that crosses the river Twymyn. The size and angle of the bridge restricts all traffic to crossing one vehicle at a time and it can be a serious problem for articulated lorries to cross. Commins Coch is also the site of one of the 1970s holiday cottages allegedly burnt down by Meibion Glynd┼Ár during its campaign against English incomers.
