In north wales there are two incredible bridges that span the treacherous Menai straits between the main land and the island of ynys môn (Anglesey)
But they’re not my choice, hidden away in the town of Conway are two other bridges, one a disused mail route (original purpose of the Menai bridge) and a rail way bridge (original use of the britania bridge). Both bridges are in fact prototypes by their respective builders Thomas Telford and Robert Stephenson. The Telford suspension bridge is now a pedestrian path under protection by the national trust whilst the Stephenson bridge is the only tubular bridge of his still standing after a fire broke out on the britania bridge and it was rebuilt. These two are definitely worth visiting to see how these two masters of bridge building practised their craft.
