"Big Bridge and Small Town" Menai Bridge by Balam

Menai Bridge Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 38 photos

Menai Bridge town only became known as Menai Bridge when Thomas Telford built his suspension Bridge over the menai Straits.
The town existed before the bridge under the name of Porthaethwy for many centuries and it still has a house in current use which dates from the 17th century (Cambria) . It is even very likely that a community has existed on the site since Roman times as it is the shortest crossing of the straits.
