The River Llugwy, Afon Llugwy, is a tributary of the River Conwy that has its source below Carnedd Llewelyn above Capel Curig in Snowdonia. The average annual rainfall in the catchment of the Llugwy is the highest recorded in England and Wales. The Llugwy follows the A5 until its joins the River Conwy in Betws-y-Coed. On its route it falls over the Swallow Falls, and is then crossed by the Miner's Bridge, a wooden bridge set at a steep incline over the river. Salmon have bred in the Llugwy for centuries, but spring running fish were not introduced until 1920. A decade later these fish and their progeny were returning to the river in April and May.
