Address : Waterloo Bridge, Conwy, United Kingdom     Google maps

This bridge is a memorial to the sense of relief and euphoria felt in Britain when French leader Napoleon Bonaparte was defeated by Britain and Prussia at Waterloo, Belgium, in 1815. This ended 23 years of almost continuous war with France.

Cast letters along the arch of the bridge span spell out: ‘This arch was constructed in the same year the Battle of Waterloo was fought’.

Waterloo Bridge has a span of 32 metres and was built to carry Telford’s London to Holyhead coach road (later the A5) over the river Conwy.
