Remains of an old railway bridge at Pentraeth
Remains of an old railway bridge at Pentraeth
This support is all that remains of a railway bridge that once carried the line to Benllech. The line was built by J Strachan of Cardiff and was opened on July 1 1908 as far as Pentraeth and carried passenger and goods traffic. The line was extended to Red Wharf Bay and Benllech station and fully opened May 24 1909. Due to the rapid expansion of rural road transport in the 1920s, regular passenger services finally ceased on September 22 1930 and goods traffic on April 3 1950. The track was all removed by October 16 1953
