The Dingle (Nant y Pandy) Nature Reserve

The Dingle / Nant y Pandy Local Nature reserve is a 10 hectare (25 acre) wooded valley, rich in wildlife and history.

It has recently been enhanced through community involvement, working in partnership, and by grant aid. These enhancements include a wooden boardwalk that winds its way along the Cefni, which allows access to all to many parts of the reserve, three new bridges, sculptures, sculpted benches and picnic tables.
The sculptures include a huge dragonfly, giant seed pods and split oak timbers revealing the poem Nant y Pandy, by local poet Rolant o Fôn.

Parts of the woodland are dominated by sessile oak, ash and wild cherry, with a spectacular show of blue bells in spring. Other parts are mostly sycamore and the occasional ash tree with an abundance of ferns and mosses and woodland flowers, such as wood anemones. Coed Plas (behind Saint Cyngar’s Church) was planted with sweet chestnut, beech and Scots pine, and has a carpet of wild daffodils in spring.
Frogs and newts live in the wetter areas, and adders and lizards in the drier woodland. There are many butterfly species, such as gatekeeper and the speckled wood, as well as moths. There are also dragonflies and damselflies, hoverflies, bees and wasps, beetles, slugs and snails, spiders, woodlice, and many other small creatures.

Birds are easy to see throughout the year; blue tits and great tits nest in the woods and moorhen in the water; wrens and grey wagtails are common small birds seen along the boardwalk; and larger birds, ravens, buzzards and herons fly overhead. A glimpse of a kingfisher may be seen as a flash of electric blue, or a dipper may be bobbing along the river. The tawny owl can be heard, and often seen, in the woodland at night.

Fish like the trout, roach and perch may be seen in Llyn Pwmp, and sea trout are occasional visitors, as are eels.

Mammals are much more elusive. The only sign of the fox may be the drift of its scent across a path. Bank vole and wood mice leave nibbled hazel nuts to show their presence. Eight of the sixteen species of bat found in Britain can be seen here at dusk.

The Dingle (Nant y Pandy) Nature Reserve

Lôn Las Cefni

A wonderful route that takes you through some of Anglesey’s most picturesque scenery.

Route Details

Region/Area: North West Wales
Distance: 11 miles
Classification: Easy/Medium
Traffic: Mostly traffic free
Surface: Mixed
Start: Malltraeth
Finish: Cefni Reservoir

Route Description

Starting at the wonderfully located village of Malltraeth, in the south west corner of the island, the route heads along Malltraeth Marsh to Pont Marquis where the traffic free path starts. This section of the route is almost 3 miles long in a dead straight line, so beware when the wind is against you!

After crossing over the A5 and under the A55 trunk road, the route crosses the disused Amlwch Branch railway line before heading into Llangefni alongside the River Cefni. There are plenty of places to eat and fill up on supplies in this old market town before continuing the ride northwards.

The route leads you into the local nature reserve known as The Dingle which has additional boardwalks and sculptures to enhance the journey. Passing under the Amlwch Branch line you then ride above the River Cefni on an impressive boardwalk before you reach the shores of Llyn Cefni, a reservoir and local nature reserve. At the dam of the reservoir you can cycle eastwards to link up to National Route 5 or head west to finish at the village of Bodffordd.

From Malltraeth it is possible to travel in the opposite direction across Malltraeth Cob to Newborough Forest. Lon Las Cefni runs through the forest, famous for its red squirrel population, to the village of Newborough, or you can park up your bike and head to the beach at Newborough Sands.
