Lion Statues at entrance to Britannia Bridge
The original tubular railway bridge, between Bangor and Anglesey, was designed by Robert Stephenson and opened in 1850. It was destroyed by fire in 1970 and rebuilt to carry both rail and road traffic. This photograph shows the Lions guarding the entrance to the old bridge, viewed from the Bangor side before the fire.
