16/20 May 2017: The Menai Bridge to Wylfa – Part 6
Wylfa to Amlwch Port: 11.1 miles (17.8km) +453m -452m (20 May 2017)
Today we walked clockwise in order to finish the walk at Amlwch Port. We started next to Wyfla Nuclear Power Station and because of the construction works for the new power station the path had been diverted. After leaving the construction area we rounded Wylfa Head and walked to Wales’ most northerly settlement, the former fishing village of Cemaes.
A little further on we came to the church of Llanbadrig, dedicated to St Patrick, which stands on one of the oldest Christian sites in Wales. The Coast Path then took us to Llanlleiana Head, Wales’ most northerly point and the site of an iron age settlement.
A good path traversed the high, steep coastal slope dropping down to Porth Wen, meaning White Port because of the quarzite outcrops, and passed the old brickworks. We then dropped further down into Bull Bay and after another mile reached Amlwch Port.
This was a very strenuous walk with lots of ups and downs. The final section from Bull Bay was never ending at at the end it was a great relief to take off my boots.
