Conway Castle

Today our Wild Wales Bus tour crossed over the border into Wales from the Roman town of Chester. We visited Conway Castle that was built by the Norman invader Edward I on the shore of the river Conway. It was the site of an existing Cistercian Abbey that was taken down. The fortress was built in 1277-1307 in an attempt to over rule the Welsh. The Conway suspension bridge was built by Thomas Telford across the Conway River and was designed to match the adjacent castle in 1822-1826. Meirion our friendly Welsh bus driver drove us up the Orme to visit the Bronze Age Copper Mines that were discovered in 1987. Tonight we are staying at our hotel on the promenade in Llandudno overlooking the Irish sea.
