Britannia Bridge, Isle of Anglesey, North Wales

Photographs of the Britannia Bridge spanning the Menai Strait



A brief history:



  • Britannia Bridge was originally known as a  tubular bridge after it's completion on March 5th 1850, but after a major fire devastated the bridge in May 1970, a major reconstruction of the bridge was carried out, it is now known as a two-tier truss bridge.


  • The bridge was built just decades after the Menai Suspension Bridge because of the demand for a rail link between Chester and Holyhead which faciliated a sea link over to Dublin.


  • The design of the bridge was entrusted to Robert Stephenson


  • The bridge received Grade II Listed status in March 1966.


Photographs include the:


  • Menai Strait
