Inventory: Lists | Log | References | Condensed | Search

This is a list of all 4 bridges from the suspension bridge inventory crossing River Conwy. Please note that different rivers with the same name will be grouped together. For example, selecting 'Bear Creek' shows bridges across several different Bear Creeks. Also, similarly named rivers are grouped separately. For example, 'River Dee' (UK) bridges are grouped separately from 'Dee River' (Australia) bridges. Wherever you see a "Bridgemeister ID" number you can click it to isolate the bridge on its own page.

Notes
  • 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."
