Holyhead Breakwater
Holyhead Breakwater
The almost 2 mile long Holyhead breakwater, built between 1845 and 1873 to provide protection to Holyhead harbour so that its use as a port for Irish traffic could be increased. The straight road on the right is the route of the former breakwater railway, used to transport stone from quarries on Holyhead Mountain for building up the breakwater.
