This well-illustrated volume will provide the first comprehensive archaeological survey of the spectacular Welsh section of Thomas Telford's London to Holyhead Road. The road was perhaps Telford's most significant achievement - crossing the mountainous terrain of north Wales and containing the famous Menai and Conwy suspension bridges. The book presents the findings of a systematic survey of the 83 miles of road from Holyhead to Chirk. This section of the road not only contains the only evident archaeological remains of the original engineering schemes, but also includes a fascinating range of associated structures such as toll houses and inns. The book will be of interest to both specialist and general readers.
