Four Mile Bridge

Details

The village name of Four Mile Bridge arises from the fact that it was at the fourth milestone from Holyhead. The literal translation of Pont Rhydybont is the somewhat ungrammatical Ford at the Bridge Bridge. As for the bridge itself, this is a rather unimpressive low stone bridge. The village itself is quite small and is split between the two islands, the larger portion being on Holy Island.

Before the construction of the Stanley Embankment as part of Telford's London to Holyhead A5 road, Four Mile Bridge was the only road link between Holy Island and the rest of Anglesey. A further link was constructed parallel to the Stanley Embankment when the A55 Expressway was built in 2001.
