• Join our next field trip?   We will be holding a guided walk in partnership with Anglesey AONB on Sunday 21st April, at Traeth Bychan. The walk will look at the Carboniferous (fossils and lime kiln), evidence for the Tertiary dyke, and really good Ice-Age abrasion of the limestone surfaces. The walk will be around 2km, mostly along the beach, but including crossing some boulders and rocks that can be slippery.Please look out for the booking form and further details on the AONB website, coming soon: https://www.anglesey.gov.wales/en/Residents/Countryside/Countryside-events-and-activities.aspx    The event is strictly limited to 20 people and from past experience these walks have filled up very quickly.
