Conwy is near Llandudno, its castle, which dates from the time of Edward I is seen here.
The castle guards the crossing of Afon (River) Conwy, these days there is Telford's road suspension bridge, the unusual railway bridge - a closed iron "box" - and a mid 20th Century road bridge, out of sight is the late 20th. century tunnel taking the A55 under the river and town.
Another view of the three bridges taken from the town walls.
A slightly "pulled back" version of the above, I like the grouping of the bridges and castle with the countryside as a background.
Still with the bridges in the background - a view along the quayside of Conwy harbour.
One taken from on the old town walls showing the castle, the bridges the quay and the countryside as a backdrop.
A view of the castle from nearby on the walls. The town was built effectively within the protection of the castle which rather dominates it.
The walls rise quite steeply, this was taken from further along the wall.
Looking right across the old town from the high point of the walls to the castle. You can also see where Robert Stephenson breeched the walls when he built the railway through here and on to Holyhead.
The walls still surround the old town, as seen here.
The last one of Conwy is of the castle seen from the walls.
