Menai Strait Crossings - Isle of Anglesey & Mainland North Wales, United Kingdom - Earth View

The Menai Strait, a narrow stretch of shallow tidal water spanning 25 km (16 mile) in length, separates the Isle of Anglesey from the northern mainland region of Wales in the United Kingdom.

The strait is bridged in only two spots near to one another where the main A5 London Holyhead Trunk Road of Great Britain crosses via Robert Stephenson’s Britannia Bridge, built in 1850, and by the Menai Suspension Bridge, built earlier in 1826 by Thomas Telford, crossing to the island from Bangor, Gwynedd, UK.

The Britannia Bridge crossing to Anglesey Island via A5 Road leads to Llanfairpwllgwyngyll, a large Welsh village with its original long form name, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, best known for its 58 characters and longest place name in Europe. The first recording of a ferry crossing the Menai here was in 1292.
