Description:Pen-y-Clip viaducts Only from the sea can the magnificent engineering of the transport links around the headland be appreciated properly. At the lower level the railway viaduct of the 1840s is surmounted by the improved road (now eastbound only) of 1935. Immediately above, and now lost is the older road, and higher still is the Telford road from the 1820s. This is a walk that needs planning as the entire route around the headland is only open for a couple of hours at low water - consider the hazards of making this journey before there was any alternative!
