SH7756 : Miners' Bridge Rapid

taken 15 years ago, near to Betws-y-Coed, Conwy, Great Britain

Miners' Bridge Rapid
Miners' Bridge Rapid
Apart from a grade 5 section invariably portaged, Miners' Bridge Rapid is the hardest part of the Afon Llugwy down to Betws y Coed, at a good grade 4. In this high level of water, it was quite challenging, but everyone in this group paddled down successfully. The Miners' bridge itself provides a good viewpoint for the upper part of the rapid, but the final drop just under the bridge seems the most common place to come to grief for which the river right bank below the bridge is a better spot to view or conduct a rescue.
