 Conwy CastleClick on a photo to see it full size in a new browser window

Conwy is near Llandudno, its castle, which dates from the time of Edward I is seen here.


Conwy bridges

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.



Conway bridges

A slightly "pulled back" version of the above, I like the grouping of the bridges and castle with the countryside as a background.


Conwy harbourside

Still with the bridges in the background - a view along the quayside of Conwy harbour.


Conwy castle and bridges

One taken from on the old town walls showing the castle, the bridges the quay and the countryside as a backdrop.


Conwy Castle

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.


Conwy panorama

The walls rise quite steeply, this was taken from further along the wall.



Over Conwy to the castle

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.


Conwy walls

The walls still surround the old town, as seen here.



Conwy Castle seen from the walls

The last one of Conwy is of the castle seen from the walls.
