Austin Healey's special place
- Austin Healey
- Former England and British Lions rugby player
Austin Healey, former England and British Lions rugby player has shared Conwy Bridge in North Wales as his special place, featuring the elegant Conwy suspension bridge and toll keepers house.
'Most of my childhood memories were within and around the site of Conwy bridge. Either crabbing from the jetty whilst my dad had a beer, eating fish and chips in the rain because it was too cold to BBQ or water-skiing under the bridge.
'I always tried to break the 5 mph speed limit behind the boat. My dad would be piloting, whilst mum and sister would be sat in the back watching and hoping that the show off on the skis would fall down in to the freezing cold river.'
