The Medieval Bridge At My Local Train Station

I’m lucky enough to live near the town of Conwy, North Wales. It has a rich historical background. Conwy Castle and the town walls were built, on the instruction of Edward I of England, between 1283 and 1289, as part of his conquest of the principality of Wales. Anyhow, this is where I catch the train to work twice a week.

1.

The actual medieval bridge, which obviously originally didn’t have a railway running underneath it’s span.

2.

The town of Conwy is a walled Market town, that has a population of around 4,000

3.

It is a place in Wales where the old Welsh language can still be heard in widespread, casual and official usage. I’m a fluent Welsh speaker myself.

4.

Kids still graffiti over the medieval walls!

5.

The waiting room has all modern facilities, including WiFi!

6.

This part certainly isn’t medieval!

7.

A bi-lingual sign at the station entrance. (Some of the Welsh letters have fallen off).

8.

The views to work in the mornings are stunning, taking in views of the North Wales coast.

9.

A more modern bridge was built to carry the trains into the town.
