69. Trearddur Bay to Rhosneigr

I parked at the free car park at the library in Rhosneigr. I caught the early #25 bus to Caergeiliog. After getting off the bus I had all of 30 seconds before the #4 to Trearddur Bay arrived. It’s not that this is a really frequent service, I was just lucky because my first bus was late.

Looking towards Anglesey Airport at Traeth Llydan

The weather had begun to clear from raining most of the night, to blue clear skies by midday. The walking was very easy along the coast, which was quite flat. I passed close to Rhoscolyn keeping half an eye open for the third of Anthony Garrartt outdoor paintings.

Four Mile Bridge

I arrived at Traeth Llydan and could easily see Anglesey Airport across a tiny water course. However, I was still on Holy Island  and I now had to make a large detour north towards Four Mile Bridge. The route was predominantly on roads and had little of interest to offer. Four Mile Bridge is the name of the village that sits alongside a bridge that connects Holy Island with Anglesey.

Exposed breached old causeway

I cross the bridge and pass a couple of farms. My luck is in at Penrhyn-hwlad where a low tide has exposed an old breached causeway. The causeway was easy to negotiate and saved me about a kilometre of walking around the inlet. I pass under and around the landing beacons and lights and finally around the airfield perimter before walking last couple of miles along beach. Took 4.75hrs to cover the 16 miles.
