Menai Bridge is a small town on Anglesey – named after
the celebrated suspension bridge. Located at the closest
crossing point to the mainland, the site is believed to have been inhabited for thousands of years as
evidenced by the finding of stone axes dating back to the Neolithic Period together with artefacts from
the Bronze Age
Thomas Telford’s suspension bridge and Robert Stephenson’s railway bridge are off to the left of this
view of the Menai Strait. Before they were built, the only way to reach Anglesey was by ferry. The
invasion by the Romans in AD59 was
supposedly by means of rafts and
swimming their horses across.
