Some of the concrete sections used in the building of Port Winston were built in the Conwy estuary and towed to their final destination at Arromanches.
Further east along the coast at Arromanches it is possible to see the remains of an artificial Mulberry harbour, Port Winston, which protected the landings of 2,500,000 men and 500,000 vehicles during the invasion over 50 years ago.
