Disgrifiad o´r Safle Waterloo Bridge, Betws-y-Coed, is a road bridge with a single 32m span of cast iron ribs between masonry abutments, designed by Thomas Telford and carrying the Holyhead Road (A5) (nprn 402349) over the Afon Conwy. Although cast lettering in the segmental arch reads: 'THIS ARCH WAS CONSTRUCTED IN THE SAME YEAR THE BATTLE OF WATERLOO WAS FOUGHT' (i.e.1815), it is believed that the pieces were not delivered from William Hazledine's foundry until 1816. Decoration cast into the spandrels depicts the four national emblems: the rose (England), thistle (Scotland), leek (Wales) and shamrock (Ireland).
