Llaneilian Church, Isle of Anglesey

Our guided tour took our American customers to Llaneilian church.

They were thllaneilian church skeletonrilled to see the that the medieval character of the interior of the church has been so well preserved.  Amazed at the skeleton painting above the door carrying a scythe.

There is an unique outdoor exhibition on Anglesey at the moment by landscape artist Anthony Garratt.

It is called “FOUR Anglesey” – the four pieces of giant artwork have been erected in four areas of Anglesey – Penmon, Lligwy, on the Straits near Brynsiencyn and Rhoscolyn.  They have been erected onto large easels and left in the landscape on or near the Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path in the very spot they were painted.  You can see all four whilst walking all our packages.

The exhibition will be here until October 2015 for all to enjoy.

Royal Mail celebrates 10 landmark bridges

The Royal Mail is celebrating 10 landmark bridges on their latest set of first class stamps.
We at Anglesey Walking Holidays are so proud that our very own Menai Suspension Bridge appears on one of the first class stamps. The Menai suspension bridge, which links the Isle of Anglesey in North West Wales with mainland North Wales, was designed by Thomas Telford and completed in 1826. It rises approximately 30 meters above sea level, is 176.5 m long and is a fine example of Telford’s engineering feats.
