Abstrait:

The historic Chainbridge in Llantysillio near Llangollen has undergone a painstaking £345,000 restoration allowing it to be re-opened to the public for the first time in over 30 years, since safety concerns forced the bridge to close. Originally built in 1817 to open up a cheap transport route across the River Dee, the Chainbridge is thought to contain the oldest wrought iron chain links in the world. It was later rebuilt during the 1870s and in 1928 following heavy flooding, who rebuilt the suspension bridge that stands there today, still incorporating the original links.

The restoration works designed by Ramboll and carried out by Shemec Ltd. required the structure to be dismantled and each piece of metalwork to be carefully labelled so it could be reinstated in its original location. The restored bridge will now help re-establish the strong link between the Llangollen railway and the Llangollen canal, part of the Pontcysyllte World Heritage site and enhance the local tourism economy.
