Two bridges, Conwy
Two bridges, Conwy
In the forefront is Thomas Telford's famous suspension bridge over the Conwy river. The bridge stands next to Conwy Castle. The bridge was completed in 1826 and replaced the ferry at the same point. Telford matched the bridge's supporting towers with the castle's turrets. The Conwy bridge runs alongside the wrought iron tubular railway bridge built by Robert Stephenson.
