More about this scene


Caption for Conwy, The Castle And Suspension Bridge 1906: We can see a tower of Stephenson's 412ft-long tubular railway bridge in the centre of the picture. This structure was built on the line of the old L & NWR Railway in 1848. A 19th-century guide describes how it increases in height above high water from around 22 feet at the ends to 25 feet at the centre. The two tubes are each 14 feet wide and weigh around 1,300 tons.
