'Visit Llŷn' Leaflet

This leaflet was recently published by the AONB Service. It contains useful information about the area's attractions and the Coastal Bus service. It's an useful guide for visitors - and residents!

It is available at many local attractions, or contact us for a copy.

The Sustainable Development Fund

We are currently open to applications to support suitable projects. Contact us for more information or application form.

Keep Wales Tidy were also successful and undertook a project to research into the wells in the area. The AONB Service commissioned a similar project in 2005 but the information needed updating. The research by Keep Wales Tidy records the locations and current condition of the wells and also records stories and superstitions relating to them. The comprehensive and interesting report can be seen here.
