Footbridge over the Afon Alaw (Anglesey Coastal Path)
Footbridge over the Afon Alaw (Anglesey Coastal Path)
The new footbridge over the Afon Alaw now completes the Anglesey Coastal Path cutting 2 miles off the old route by avoiding having to walk along the A5025. Amazingly (or perhaps not surprisingly), the bridge has already been vandalised with blue paint as can be seen on the abutment.

The artwork adorning the bridge was designed by artists Ann Catrin Evans and Catrin Meirion. They are made up of a series of shields depicting scenes of wildlife and scenes from the story of Branwen, from the Welsh folk tales 'Y Mabinogion'. There are strong links to this area and the tale claims that her resting place is on the banks of the Alaw estuary.
