Chain Bridge

A unique bridge spanning the River Dee

Accessible by foot and restored and reopened to the public during 2015, the Chain Bridge is a must see.

Built in 1817 by local entrepreneur Exuperiur Pickering to transport coal and limestone to the A5 and the upper Dee valley, the bridge provided a strong link between the Llangollen railway and the canal and is a perfect way to cross the River Dee. To visit, jump off the Llangollen heritage railway at Berwyn station, or reach it via a walk along the canal from Llangollen. Its yet another perfect photo opportunity along this world heritage site.
