Pont Hafren

Pont Hafren. A symbolic gate to Wales from the South. The bridge is more commonly known under its English name: Severn Bridge. It was proudly opened in 1966. It’s located on the Severn river between Aust on the English side and Cas-gwent (Eng. Chepstow) on the Welsh one.


After discovery of some malfunctions in this bridge, in 1996 another one was built a little further down the river. The two bridges are used now, but when the weather conditions turn really bad, the first bridge is closed.


People used to come to the observation deck to admire the construction. The posh deck is gone, but the bridge is still holding on 🙂
