There was also this other, smaller, suspension bridge between Telford's suspension bridge, and Stephenson's tubular bridge. No longer there, does any one know when it was removed?

The tiny pedestrian suspension bridge - see image ref WPW002055 - was built 1904. Telford's bridge became a pedestrian bridge in 1958 when the new road bridge opened. Did the smaller footway close around then? There is now no sign of it having been there.

Just visible here is one of the first suspension bridges - built by Thomas Telford opened in 1826 to replace a ferry. It carried the road traffic from Cheshire to Holyhead but was on 2.5 metres wide. Part of the castle was removed to allow for the suspension cables to be anchored. Later a new bridge was added on the seaward side to carry the A55. The main road to Bangor and Holyhead now passes under the river in a tunnel.

The suspension bridge is now pedestrians only, restricted daytime hours, subject to a toll, and in the ownership of the National Trust.

Wrought iron tubular bridge- the first- built by Robert Stephenson, opened 1849. Carries the railway in two tubes. The closeness of the railway to the castle resulted in some damage to one of the castle towers. The railway bridge received decoration appropriate to its castle location.
