    Telford's bridge, built 1822-26 was, until 1958, the only road crossing at Conwy.
    Since then it has been a footbridge, and is in the care of the National Trust. The 327ft span, between towers design to match those of the castle behind, still has the original suspension chains.
    The original toll house (at the Llandudno Junction end) has been furnished as it would have been in the mid 19th century, with entry of just £1.

    Desgined by Thomas Telford in 1826 this magnificent Suspension Bridge connects to the 13th century castle. The view of both the Suspension Bridge and the Castle is probably the most photographed in the area, its a stunning landmark and one which I am very proud to live so close to.

    I am (just about) old enough to remember when this bridge carried the all the traffic into Conwy. When the new bridge was built in 1958, serious consideration was given to demolishing Telford's bridge. In those days there was not so much interest in preserving our heritage as there is now. It's good that common sense prevailed and the National Trust took over the bridge. I like to walk into Conwy over this bridge (although it is somewhat difficult to cross the busy road), It gives a special medieval atmosphere to walk into the town over this old bridge.
