They were virtually never used in battle! The moat has been restored and the original shipping dock can be seen.

The landscape - little rocky hillocks known as drumlins - was formed in the ice age, and there is also the Cemlyn lagoon, an important wildfowl habitat. At Llanrhyddlad there's the Anglesey Birds of Prey and Conservation Centre, where these raptors are bred and flown. ——————————————————————————————————4/5—— Are you getting value for money? 674 DO NOT LET MY SHARES GO DOWN p510 Fit VFM Flashback What's On

In fact, it's a fascinating place in its own right. Its history of settlement goes back to Neolithic times and it was the last druid stronghold. Cross Thomas Telford's beautiful suspension bridge and turn right for the little yachting town of Beaumaris. ——————————————————————————————————1/5—— Are you getting value for money? 674 DO NOT LET MY SHARES GO DOWN p510 Fit VFM Flashback What's On

You can take a boat trip around the island for closer looks at the seabirds and, perhaps, a glimpse of seals. Nature lovers will then head for the northern coast of Anglesey, between Cemaes and Church Bay, which has b—en designated a Heritage Coast.
