    I have just seen another casualty of storm Clara. The famous miners bridge over a tributary of the river Conwy at Betws-y-coed has been washed away.

    very sad to see history wiped out, but the memories are in the heart not in the eye.

    Theres a suspention footbridge that crosses a bit further down and the telford steel arch which is more historic and far more important.

    I wonder how the packhorse bridge under the A5 at Idwal got on ?
