A history of the crossing of the Conwy from prehistoric times to the end of the twentieth century and its significant role in the social and political history of North Wales. Black-and-white photographs. First published in January 1991.
The immersed-tube tunnel under the Conwy river is the first in Britain and forms the last link of Euroroute 22. It also forms a link with several engineering feats of the past and opens a new chapter in the long history of overcoming the problem of communication across one of the finest estuaries in Europe.
In this book, Michael Senior takes us on a journey of journeys. From prehistoric times to the present day, the crossing of the Conwy has played a significant role in the story of northern Wales. The whole of its social and political history has been affected by the fact that the Conwy river is where it is. Few rivers of its size have had so much impact on their area's history.
