Four Mile Boats

Four Mile Boats


Afternoon all, wow it’s scorching here, thought I’d upload a cool shot….

Why Four Mile you may ask well as Wikipedia puts it.

Four Mile Bridge  Welsh –  Pontrhydybont / Pont-rhydbont / Pontrhypont) is the name given to a bridge  and the village surrounding it in Anglesey  Wales. They are so named because they are located around four miles southeast of Holyhead, the largest town on the island.

The bridge is one of only two connecting the Anglesey mainland to the smaller Holy Island. It is 120 metres long and carries the B4545 road over the Cymyran Strait.

The village itself is quite small and is split between the two islands, the larger portion being on Holy Island. It is hard to get information on the population of the village as it is split over two parishes. It is safe to say however that it must be around 500 as the largest part of the village is in the parish of Rhoscolyn which has a population of 484 and no other settlement of any real size 

Anyway it was a lovely evening and we made a quick dash there as we knew the water would be calm and perfect for the shot.

loads more to follow
