Landscape - Aberlleiniog, Llangoed and Penmon

Aberlleiniog, Llangoed and Penmon all lie in close proximity to one another within the south eastern corner of Anglesey.  This area is covered by the mature, predominantly broadleaf woodland that fringes the Menai Strait.  It lies within the Anglesey Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).  

The landscape between the town of Beaumaris and Black Point is sublimely attractive, with stunning, far reaching views of the Menai Strait, the coast of mainland North Wales, the Great Orme headland and the majestic Snowdon and Carneddau mountain ranges.  The pretty village of Llangoed has its own Local Nature Reserve, with Aberlleiniog Castle – a restored 11th century Norman motte and bailey castle - at its centre.  The charming village of Penmon lies within a mile or so of Llangoed, and is directly linked to footpaths through Penmon Deer Park (which historically held deer), and on to Penmon Priory, Black Point and around the area’s impressive limestone quarries.  Black Point boasts a distinctive black and white striped lighthouse, and superb views across the Puffin Sound to Puffin Island.  Penmon has a wealth of historical attractions, which include the ancient Priory, Church and dovecote.  There is a car park (small charge payable) immediately adjacent to the buildings.  

Llangoed has a car park at the centre of the village, and there are car parks at Lleiniog beach and at Black Point.  There are numerous walks in the area, including the Anglesey Coastal Path, which presents a good opportunity to explore and appreciate the area’s varied habitats and landscape features.
