Hi GJACK, it is the The Menai Suspension Bridge or Pont Grog y Borth in Welsh. It was designed by Thomas Telford and completed in 1826. It carries road traffic to and from mainland Wales onto the isle of Anglesey. The isle of Anglesey is situated North of the mainland and you can see the mountains of Snowdonia National Park from the view point. Fabulous place.

Glad you like the van, I love it even though my other car is a 20 year old S-TYpe Jaguar with only 16,000 miles on the clock.

regards
john

I know where that is!!!

It's the Menai Bridge across the Menai Straits between mainland Wales and Anglesey in North Wales.

And taken from this car park...

Spot on Keith,
We pop up to Llaneilian (near Amlwch) once a year for a bit of peace and quiet and always stop off at this location for a cuppa with fab views.
