Llanroost Bridge, Merionethshire
Medium: Aquatint, coloured
View of Llanrwst Bridge. The town of Llanwrst is situated in the Conwy Valley to the north of Betws-y-Coed. The unique three arched 17th century stone bridge which stands over the River Conwy, was built in 1636 and it is said that Inigo Jones designed it. The bridge was once known as the ‘Buttermilk bridge’ because when the bridge was officially opened it collapsed and drunken workmen were blamed- in consequence the workmen who repaired it were only allowed to drink buttermilk whilst working on the bridge.
