The Town Walls (2), Conwy, Caernarfonshire, Wales
 
View from the Town Walls, Conwy, Caernarfonshire, Wales, Great Britain
Conwy - The town walls.

A high level view, from the top of the wall, of one of the small side streets which end at the wall. The wall is about 30 feet high here which is why you get such a good birds-eye view.

The wall is also about 5.5 feet thick with towers rising as high as 50 feet.

The steepest part of the Town Walls, Conwy, Caernarfonshire, Wales, Great Britain
Conwy - The town walls.

This shows the steep stretch from the highest point where it heads for the river. This is probably the steepest stretch of wall walk.

The tower at the highest point illustrates the tactics of surveillance; it is set forward of the wall-line to give a clear view of the approach to the Upper Gate and down the north side.

The Town Wall down to the river, Conwy, Caernarfonshire, Wales, Great Britain
Conwy - The town walls.

This is the penultimate stretch of wall before the river. There is one more section of wall beyond the tower that goes out into the river.

The small town on the other side of the river is Deganwy.
