As a business speculation, if it had been built solely to that end, the Menai Bridge would be pronounced a failure, for the interest on capital originally expended comes, at five per cent., to 6,000 per annum, and the annual income from tolls, returned in 1837 as 1,200, when the coaches were still running, must now be less rather than more. In addition to the original cost, the charge for upkeep must be taken into consideration, although, as the ironwork has not been painted for many years past, that, perhaps, does not bulk very largely.

Shades of HS2 methinks :-)

Thanks for the links Jean. I have tagged them for reading later.

If grey squirrels were "culled" why not do the same with American mink.

I bet most of them don't have the proper paperwork anyway.
