Stretching between Bangor on the north Wales mainland, over the Menai Straits, and the island of Anglesey is Menai Bridge. Built to improve the transport links between London and Holyhead (important for access to Ireland), the bridge was built by the famous Thomas telford and was opened in 1826. It was the very first suspension bridge in the world. The design is well suited to the surrounding geography and has been much copied.Read more: Menai Bridge
Off the north west coast of Anglesey lie the rocky outcrop known as "The Skerries", known in welsh as "Ynysoedd-y-Moelrhoniaid". On the largest of these islands is the Skerries lighthouse. The silohette of the island resembles a sea serpent low in the water, making a very distinctive shape. The islands have little to no vegetation with a very rocky profile. The islands are now an important seabird colony.Read more: The Skerries
