If you get a chance to visit Blackwood during your travels through the valleys, I’d definitely recommend visiting the bridge. Awesome design and has a statue to commemorate the Chartist movement. The statue is made of thousands of steel rings creating a 'mesh' figure symbolising the Chartist principle of binding together and strength in unity.

I like walks and if the view is something special its a bonus, walk the dog or just to excercise this is worth your time. I live outside blackwood so I appreciate this more than people who see it everyday. I like it.

A noticeable landmark from most areas around the town since its construction connecting quickly with Oakdale, Newbridge and beyond. The Chartist statue at the end of the bridge a reminder of the often bloody struggle that workers had to secure the right to vote.
More recently tinged with personal tragedies of more contemporary social issues.

Worth a visit to see the design of this bridge and to learn about the history. The Man on the roundabout also is very eye catching and significant.

A well-designed bridge with a bronze statue made of bolts (I think) on one side of the bridge makes it well worth visiting even if it takes you slightly out of your way.

Since this abhorrence was opened
Many poor souls have chosen to end their suffering at this supposed celebrated landmark

"Well done CCBC. For reducing the amount of depressed people in the locality

And it's also a handy Road to oakdale

The good point of this bridge it as good views, the bad points I’ve lost count how many people have taken their lives on this bridge. This bridge needs a higher fence to stop more lives being lost . A bigger fence is more important than losing more lives ,come on Caerphilly council sort it out .

Excellent Chartist Monument on the west side roundabout. Other than that its just a bridge. Decent views up and down the Valley from the bridge.
