Exposed – the Morfa Canal Bridge
The Morfa Bridge over the Swansea Canal has been found, although a little damaged, ending a long period of debate about whether it was intact or not. The community excavation of the Hafod Canal Bridge in 2013 ignited the debate again after it proved that the main bridge was no longer there. This is great news for the project, particularly because future plans, published recently propose reinstating this as a major entrance to the site. The bridge was unearthed by an archaeology team funded by the Morfa Distributor Road project. Investigations are now under way to consider options for reinstating the bridge for pedestrian use.
