The local authorities are gradually increasing the information available on this site - from 1850 to 1870 or so - and it is a place of considerable interest. The great "gouge" of rock from the side of the great hill was the source of the rock from which the breakwater (the longest in the UK) was constructed. I take a little pride in the place as, when the Prince of Wales travelled in a special train along the breakwater at the breakwater's official opening in 1873, my great-great grandfather was its driver. But it is now becoming a well-organised centre, not only for its history and Holyhead's cultural activities, but also for accentuating the wildlife in the area. I look forward to my next visit.
