Toll House for Telford's Suspension bridge
Toll House for Telford's Suspension bridge
Having lived in the area for nearly 30 years this was the first time I had ever ventured onto the bridge and its surrounds. The toll house was closed!
The suspension bridge is a Grade I listed structure and in the care of the National Trust since 1965.
Note the care in designing a building similar in architectural profile to the adjacent castle.
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.
