Soldier’s Point and Breakwater Quarry Park, Holyhead
(SH 237 837, LL65 1YG) This excursion will be led by Gareth Huws and Ian Jones
Assemble at Soldier’s Point for a talk about the house and the Breakwater (GH) then move to the Park (plenty of parking ) where the Warden will speak about the quarries etc. We will then take path to look at the quarry villages above (IJ). If anyone is not keen to take that path, a walk to the Explosives Store is an easier alternative. Return for tea at the Park café (own cost) and view exhibitions etc.
