Easy walk at Plas Yn Rhiw Details

The evocatively named “Hell’s Mouth” or Porth Neigwl in Welsh is a wide expanse of sandy beach that earned it’s name from sailors in times gone by. This is a walk at the western end of the bay, which rises to over 300m at Mynydd Rhiw, with spectacular views along it’s length.

From the NT website:

From a Neolithic burial chamber to newly planted saplings and a recently made pond, this walk offers a look at the old and the new in the countryside around thesmall manor house Plas yn Rhiw.
