On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

Holyhead to Porth Trwyn

This first section of the Isle of Anglesey coastal path is attractive and low-lying. St Cybi’s church at the start of the walk traces its history back to a monastic settlement in AD 540 with roman walls abutting the site. This beautiful parish church is one of the jewels in Anglesey's crown. This ancient place of worship is a treasure house of stained glass, carved wood and the stone masons art so do take the time to look around. Holyhead also has a full range of facilities with the pub ‘79’ recommended by CAMRA. Unfortunately at the current time of writing it is divided in two by the Alaw Estuary, which is wide and dangerous to cross on foot. You can either do the walk in two halves; by walking the first half of the walk as far as Valley/Llanynghenedl and the second from Llanfachraeth to Porth Trwyn or catch a bus between Llanynghenedl and Llanfachraeth to complete the entire section in one go.
