  View of Thomas Teldord's Suspension Bridge seen from one of the tallest towers in Conway Castle, Conway, Caernarvonshire (Gwynedd), Snowdonia, North Wales   Thomas Telford's Suspension Bridge, in the centre, seen from one of the four tallest towers in the castle.

This elegant suspension bridge was completed in 1826. It replaced the ferry, which was previously the only means of crossing the river. Attempting the crossing before this was a daunting prospect for travellers, the river currents being treacherous, and many folk drowned in the attempt.

The road bridge can be seen on the left and Robert Stephenson's railway bridge, built in 1848, on the right.
