Wrought iron tubular bridge, which is now Grade I listed, was built in the 19th century by Robert Stephenson.
Stephenson's Bridge (Conwy Rail Bridge)
Conwy railway bridge carries the North Wales coast railway line across the River Conwy between Llandudno Junction and the town of Conwy. The wrought iron tubular bridge was built by Robert Stephenson to a design by William Fairbairn. It was officially opened in 1849.
Grade I listed. LinkExternal link
Since the destruction by fire of Britannia Bridge in 1970, Conwy railway bridge remains the only surviving example of this means of construction undertaken by Stephenson.
The Conwy railway bridge runs parallel to the suspension bridge built by Thomas Telford, which is now in the care of the National Trust.
