  • This entry refers to the steel suspension footbridge nestled between Telford's suspension bridge and Stephenson's rail bridge. Click the photo to get a better view of this bridge. According to Susan Ellis, Senior Archivist of the Conwy County Borough Council, the bridge was built on the recommendation of John J. Webster who was hired to inspect Telford's suspension bridge in 1902 "following fears about the safety of its condition. He reported back making various recommendation for strengthening the bridge, including that a separate footbridge be constructed."
  • Next to 1826 Conwy (Conway) - Conwy, Wales, United Kingdom.
