The Waterloo Bridge at Betws-y-Coed in North Wales demonstrates one of the most famous and certainly dramatic uses of the clarendon letterform. The essential robustness of the form is entirely appropriate for reproduction in cast iron especially since the lettering, which proclaims, 'this arch was constructed in the same year as the battle of Waterloo was fought', is not so much applied to the bridge, as physically part of the structure.
