BRIDGE FROM THE WILD

Countryfile Magazine - - Contents -

The River Conwy can be a wild beast when swollen by au­tumn and win­ter rains in the moun­tains of Gwynydd and rush­ing just 27 miles (44km) to the sea. The el­e­gant three-spanned Pont Fawr con­nects the town of Llan­r­wst to Snow­do­nia and has kept trav­ellers dry and safe since the mid 17th cen­tury – though the river has oc­ca­sion­ally burst its banks and flooded the town de­spite the bridge’s best ef­forts. Just be­fore you cross into the mar­ket town, Vir­ginia creep­er­clad Tu Hwnt i’r Bont of­fers tea and cakes to weary walk­ers.
