Just over to the Left side of the bridge you will see Church Island, We walked along the Belgian Promadade and over the causeway to the Island.
The Island is really just a graveyard with an old Church which dates from the 15thc although there was a church on the site since the 7th c when it was founded by St Tysilio.
At the highest point of the island there is a war memorial to the local men who died during the world wars, there are some good views of the Menai straits and of both bridges.
One of the Oldest buildings in Menai Bridge is Cambria, in 1686 a licence was granted for a building to be buit for the ferry men on Porthaethwy Common. It used to be known as The Porthaethwy Ferry House before the building of the bridge when it was later adapted as an Inn known sometimes as the 'Three Tuns' fut more famously as Cambria.
The House is still there and although the bracket for the old Inn's sign is still there it is now a private residence.
This is a nice looking pub in the middle of Menai Bridge, Sadly the spacious interior is a bit drab and uninteresting. There is a large kitchen and a nice looking menu.
They do bed and Breakfast
This nice Pub just over the Bridge made a good stop when having walked from Bangor to Menai Bridge, Nicely decorated it is a good place to relax and have a drink or something to eat, Unfortunately they had stopped serving food when we got there but the menu looked great and it will certainly be worth a call another time. (Food is served between 12:00 - 14:30 and 18:00 - and I think 2200)
There are some interesting Photo's of ships on the Menai Straits around the Pub as well as some interesting information about shipwrecks.
