Festivities planned for Barmouth Bridge’s 150th birthday

By Cambrian News reporter in Events

AN ICONIC Dwyfor-Meirionnydd landmark will celebrate its 150th anniversary this year.

This October, Barmouth Town Council will host a weekend of activities and events to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the opening of the Barmouth Bridge.

The highlight is expected to be, as darkness falls on Saturday evening, a themed laser and firework extravaganza centred on the harbour and bridge.

The events will run across the weekend of 14-15 October.

A spokesperson for the council said: “The structure is a truly outstanding example of 19th century engineering and provides a platform to enable stunning views from the viaduct itself while at the same time being an integral part of the beautiful scene framed by the Cader Idris mountain range and underlined by the Mawddach estuary.

“It is an anniversary to be celebrated, and we hope that residents and visitors from far and wide will take part in the events held over the weekend."

I will be there, celebrating the special Barmouth Bridge in October. I remember the celebrations in Barmouth, hosted by the late and great W.D. Williams in the former primary school playground.
