Thank you François, we were lucky to see this bridge working in October; but many of the boats in the marina took advantage of the beautiful weather to get out into the estuary.

Amitiés, Amelia

Hello dear Peter, and thank you for the compliment. There are 3 bascule bridges, working on a cantilever system, to allow shipping to pass in and out of Cardiff Bay.

Have a great week, Amelia
