Designed by Ferdinand Arnodin and opened in 1906, this is a real triumph of engineering and the fact that it is still operational is a credit to Newport. If you appreciate industrial architecture you cannot afford to miss this wonderful living monument., which still makes its stately journey across the river every day. Whether you travel as a foot passenger or take the car across it is certainly worth the trip! At the height of its use the men that worked in heavy industry would have paid a small sum to walk ACROSS the top of the bridge rather than travel on the pagoda platform. These days it is only possible to make that giddying trip on high days and holidays - and while it affords magnificent views, including the Severn Crossings on a clear day, it isnt for the faint-hearted! Now then charity abseiling can be seen - but that is just plain bonkers! If you are travelling through on the M4 in South Wales, make the detour and bring your camera.
