Closed when I got there. There’s a little car parking area here. Not much to see, but definitely history which needs to be visited if in Newport

This transporter bridge is of gondola type only a few working ones remains. Fantastic engineering. If one feels braver try walking on the top of the bridge across the river and enjoy the birds eye view of Newport.

Passing home through Newport, stopped off to admire the Newport Transporter Bridge. Simply stunning silhouetted against the Welsh Sunset. Can't wait to return to see it up close!

We knew when we visited that the bridge wouldn't be open but still wanted to visit and see it. There's a small museum/ shop on site as well. Great location and an important industrial remnant that needs preserving. I didn't realise there are so few...More
