Bascule Bridge, Swansea
Bascule Bridge, Swansea
This historic bridge as seen from the River Tawe is one of the few surviving relics of the area's rich copper heritage. It had a water-powered lever system enabling a section of the bridge to be lifted to allow sailing ships to pass through.

It is due to be restored for cyclists and pedestrians to use.
