Spiky Bridge

Top choice bridge

in Swansea

About 7km south of Swansea is the rather amazing Spiky Bridge, built by convicts in the early 1840s using thousands of local fieldstones (yes, they're spiky). The main east-coast road used to truck right across it, but these days it's set beside the highway. Nearby Kelvedon Beach, Spiky Beach and Cressy Beach have deep golden sand and rarely a footprint.
