Conwy (Telford's) Suspension Bridge
Conwy Suspension Bridge, was one of the first road suspension bridges in the world. Now crossable on foot. The bridge is in the care of the National Trust. It originally carried the A55 road.
Grade I listed. LinkExternal link
Built by Thomas Telford, the bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the River Conwy next to Conwy Castle, a World Heritage Site. The bridge was completed in 1826. It is in the same style as one of Telford's other bridges, the Menai Suspension Bridge crossing the Menai Strait. The Conwy bridge runs alongside the wrought iron tubular railway bridge built by Robert Stephenson.
Conwy Road Bridge
The new road bridge was built in 1958 and originally carried the A55, until the Conwy tunnel was built in 1991. The bridge now carries the A547 across the Afon Conwy, carrying mostly local traffic.
