Rhoscolyn Rocky Coastline
Gwenfaens Pillar – Rhoscolyn, Anglesey As legend has it, St Gwenfaen from whom the church at Rhoscolyn and medieval well nearby are named after, took refuge on top of this rock stack after fleeing her hermitage from viking raiders. As the tide came in and threatened to cover her rocky refuge, the angels descended and carried her away. Rhoscolyn is a village located on Holy Island, Anglesey, Wales. It is just over five miles south of Holyhead and is the most southerly settlement on the island. The name Rhoscolyn is said to mean The Moor (Rhos) of The Column (colyn), referring to a pillar which the Romans put up to mark the edge of their territories. Rhoscolyn lies in the south western corner of Holy Island, Anglesey, Wales, looking out into the Irish Sea. The defining feature of the landscape here is the dramatic, rocky coastline were there are numerous inlets and coves. Anglesey is an important study area for some of the most ancient rocks on our planet and Rhoscolyn is one of the island’s finest geological locations. It offers a spectacular display of complex, folded rocks which were old long before the mountains of Snowdonia even existed. Anglesey has long been, and continues to be, the focus of much interest, world-wide, by research scientists and students alike.
