Bridges In Myths & Legends
Whether it be garden bridges, road bridges or bridges between realms, they appear in a suprising amount of myths and legends. Most people have heard of the Three Billy Goats Gruff who went over a bridge with a troll beneath, but what about the more obscure stories?
Devils bridge is a village in Ceredigion, Wales. It is well known for it's unique bridge which has three separate bridges built on top of each other, instead of the previous bridges being demolished.
Legend says that the original bridge was built after an old woman named Megan noticed that her cow had somehow made it to the other side of a river. This being her only cow and only source of income, Megan was very upset and worried. An old monk appeared behind her asking what was wrong, and after explaining the situation, he offered to build her a bridge. All that he wanted in return was the first living creature to cross the bridge after it was finished. Once finished, Megan threw a loaf of bread across the bridge which her dog chased after. She thanked him and told him that he could take her dog. He replied telling her that the dog was no good to him and vanished right in front of her. That's when she knew for sure that she had bested the Devil.
