In the late1890s, a hand-powered cable car 'The Aeron Express' was built to ferry workers across the harbour when the bridge was demolished by floods. The structure was recreated in1988 as a tourist attraction that ran until the end of summer 1994.

Aberaeron (meaning "mouth of the River Aeron", Aeron being a Welsh god of war) is a seaside resort town in Ceredigion, Wales, situated between Aberystwyth and Cardigan,
