1871: A New Bridge

posted in: Newspapers | 0

The attractive village of Beddgelert has been made additionally picturesque by the construction of a fine bridge, of the best materials and workmanship, connecting the houses on the island at that place with the main road. This has given accommodation to the poorer inhabitants, and to the public generally, which has long been felt. The expense of the work has been generously borne by the respected owner of the property, J. R. Ormsby Gore, Esq., M.P., Porkington; and that gentleman’s efficient agent, Mr J. Parry, Glynn Hall, has, by the inauguration of this convenience, deserved and obtained the thanks of many.
