An engineering marvel
Visit to the Newport Transporter Bridge and Tredegar House
Mrs Josie Duke at the Transporter Bridge
Normally, the Society winds down for a few weeks at this festive time of year, however this Christmas time proved rather different. Mrs Josie Duke, one of our longest serving members and committee member has always asked why we have not visited Newport’s celebrated Transporter Bridge (a more detailed account on the bridge will follow). Therefore it was decided that we would visit this engineering marvel in conjunction with an excursion to the Morgan family seat at Tredegar House.
The afternoon was spent in a very cordial fashion in a festively decked Tredegar House which is shortly to be taken over by the National Trust.
A very good time was had by all.
Too much mulled wine - it seems to be snowing heavily in Tredegar House
Many thanks to Gwyn Thomas for the photos
