Menai Suspension Bridge and Belgian Promenade, from Church Island
In 1914, a group of refugees from Mechelen, Belgium, were driven from their home town by the German invasion and found asylum in Menai Bridge. As a gesture of appreciation to the people of Menai Bridge, for providing them with food and shelter, the Belgian refugees constructed this promenade, along the foreshore from Carreg yr Halen to Church Island.
