Explore Engineering: Britannia Bridge Cathedral abutment, Anglesey

About this event

We will be having three tours of unseen parts of the Britannia Bridge: the lower level service deck, alongside the railway track, and inside the “Cathedral”, the vast open space in the abutment on the Anglesey side. Tours start at 10.00, 12.30 & 14.30 and last 1.5 hours.

The abutment is a “confined space” with an uneven, unpaved surface and construction site style temporary stairs and lighting, the service deck is adjacent to, but separate from, an operating railway.

Safety instructions must be strictly observed, groups will be restricted to 10 persons, children under 5 years of age not accepted. Hard hats and High Vis waistcoats will be provided for the visit into the abutment and again for the service deck walk.

Stout footwear and suitable clothing recommended and access may be denied to visitors considered to be unsafely shod or clad. Visitors advised to wear gloves and have a hand held torch in the abutment. Advice will be given on parking arrangements and where to assemble for the visit.

Booking is essential as there are limited places.
