Discovering Your Own Anglesey
Anglesey Island Gems, March 6, 2010
Hi there again,
I hope that you managed to keep warm where you are. Here on Anglesey we’re enjoying a proper Winter. Snwc the cat is still waiting for Global Warming and doesn’t understand the difference between weather and climate. Neither do I to be honest.
While I sit at my desk awaiting the first signs of Spring I’ve been busy adding the odd page to Anglesey Hidden Gem.
Anglesey Island Gems brings you the latest additions to add to your visit and help you make the "best of all things Anglesey-wise."
If you like this e-zine Anglesey Island Gems, please do a friend and me a big favour and "pay it forward." If a friend did forward this to you and if you like what you read, please subscribe by visiting...
Anglesey Hidden Gem
Issue #4, March 2010
This issue ...
1. My BRITANNIA BRIDGE page adds a bit more depth to the Menai Straits, as it were. Like many Anglesey people the old Britannia Bridge remains real to me and each time I look at its new incarnation I see the old bridge quite clearly.
This bridge is an astonishing example of Victorian engineering genius and can be viewed closely, if you know how to get to it. I’ll tell you how.
AND what on earth's Lord Nelson doing here?
2) BRYN CELLI DDU
I’ve already written about the Druids on Anglesey, especially about their demise at the hands of the Romans. I haven’t told you how brilliant they were though, have I?
In the centre of Anglesey, not only will you’ll discover a beautiful rural idyll but a henge and burial chamber that reach back 4,000 years. More than that there is no reason at all why you can’t sit inside the burial chamber to await the Summer and Winter Solstice. ARE YOU BRAVE ENOUGH?
For the Druids religious ritual was tied to a strict calendar and here is revealed their scientific genius at Bryn Celli Ddu.

3) MELIN LLYNNON MILL.
Just in case you didn’t know, Melin is the Welsh for Mill and Llynnon is the only working windmill on Anglesey. Not only is Llynnon a mill that can be set to catch the wind wondrously, but it also produces flour that you use to make your own bread.
Again, set in beautiful Anglesey countryside this is a MUST VISIT attraction. If you’re lucky then the miller will have set the sails and you can sit outside to enjoy a delightful meringue and pot of tea. If you’ve never seen inside a working windmill then this is your opportunity.
A few miles down the road you can also visit a watermill. Click Here for more about Llynnon Mill
4) ANGLESEY NEWS
Since the New Year there have been a few odd sightings in the night sky above Anglesey. Mynydd Mechell residents believe that there is more going on than they are telling us about. Maybe you have your own stories about UFOs? CLICK HERE for about Anglesey’s UFOs.
