A bridge crosses the River Gwaun in the north of the parish, giving the place its name. Pontfaen’s little church is dedicated to St Brynach, a 6th century missionary who is said to have communed with angels on Carningli, which overlooks the Gwaun Valley. The church is mostly Victorian, but two inscribed stones in the churchyard may date back as far as Brynach’s time.
