Moelfre history and geology walk

This superb Moelfre history and geology walk will explore some of the fascinating history of the area from the Bronze age, to the Celts and Romans and on to more recent times as we discover the story of the Royal Charter shipwreck. We will see 350 million year old limestone rocks and learn about the story they tell us of Anglesey’s ancient past. From quiet country lanes, wooded vales with babbling brooks, to open coastal scenery with extensive views, this walk has it all.

This is a 5 mile moderate / difficult walk requiring a good level of fitness and agility on local lanes, public footpaths and the coastal path, it would be unsuitable for young children, buggies and those with a mobility impairment. Some of the ground is uneven and can be boggy at times, boots or good footwear are recommended.
