North WalesA470 Blaenau-Cancoed

Geography
 

Our branch covers the northern part of Wales, famous for its spectacular mountainous scenery and beautiful coastline. The branch celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2011 but remains one of the smallest in the Institution with a membership of around 150.

 
 
The Branch Today 
We hold monthly meetings throughout the winter months as well as the usual seminars and field visits. Our Annual Dinner is renowned as “the best” and we work hard to set higher standards year after year. Perhaps the most famous highways through our region are (1) the A5 Llandegai to Chirk built by Thomas Telford and designated the first historic route in the UK, and (2) the A55 North Wales Coast Road, a modern expressway that connects Chester and the international ferry terminal at Holyhead.
