Entering Ponthir from Llanfrechfa
The B4236 Caerleon Road approaches the Ponthir boundary.
Although many names of Welsh origin have been anglicised locally (in pronunciation, spelling, or both), the local pronunciation of Ponthir is similar to how a Welsh speaker would say it. It is always pronounced 'pont-here', with the t and h separate, and never as the th in panther). Ponthir means long bridge (literally bridge long).

The edge of Caerleon Bridge and the Usk
The River Usk viewed from the western (downstream) edge of Caerleon Bridge. The bridge is too narrow for pavements. That's not a pavement on the right side of the bridge, but a narrow sloping area between the wall and roadway. Pedestrians use the footbridge <a title='http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/1592199' rel='nofollow' href='http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/1592199'>Link</a><img style='padding-left:2px;' alt='External link' title='External link - shift click to open in new window' src='http://s0.geograph.org.uk/img/external.png' width='10' height='10'/> built alongside the upstream side of the bridge in 1968.
