Jo’s Blog of the day

If it’s possible to have an ‘iconic’ scene from my hometown of Newport (South Wales) it would possibly be one that includes the Transporter Bridge. It’s one of only two in the UK. An impressive swinging gondola bridge that makes it ‘slow’ way between the east and west banks of the river Usk. It was originally a short cut that delivered workers and goods to and from the steelworks of Llanwern and Lysaghts. Nowadays it’s mostly used as a tourist attraction. Still very impressive though.
