Roman Mile Stone, Near Llanfairfechan.
Roman Mile Stone, Near Llanfairfechan.
A view of a replica Roman mile stone. The original has been removed to a museum, presumably in Cardiff or London, definitely not one in North Wales. The Romans probably passed this marker on their route to the Isle of Anglesey; the obvious crossing is visible in the background across Traeth Lafan (Lavan Sands). This crossing was still in daily use until the 1820's when Telford's suspension bridge was opened.
