Crimea incline
Crimea incline
This pair of self-acting inclines was the route followed by all of the products from Brundrit's quarrying. In later years extensive storage hoppers were constructed above the Penmaen Jetty and conveyor belts replaced the tramways on the jetty, but it was always a boast that ships could be loaded with crushed rock on both sides of the jetty simultaneously. Close examination is required to find any evidence of this furious activity today, and the A55 Expressway runs over the site of the storage hoppers on a significant viaduct. Closure of Wright's rail sidings and jetty in 1952 meant the closure of these inclines as well - all traffic being routed via Bell Yard from this time.
