Berwyn Chain Bridge  Restoration Project

Restoration of the Chain Bridge over the River Dee at Berwyn is now complete and the bridge is once again open to the public.  The railway have cleared and upgraded the path from the station through the tunnel under the line and down the slope to the bridge.

This now opens up the possibilities for a train ride to Berwyn and a leisurely walk back to Llangollen along the canal; or the other way round. Alternatively, a break of journey at Berwyn to visit the Horseshoe Falls, then back on the train.
