Llanymynech Rocks

Man-made treasure

Straddling the border between England and Wales, the reserve lies at the southern end of the carboniferous limestone outcrop that stretches from Anglesey and the Great Orme at Llandudno. From the early 19th century until the end of the First World War, the site was a busy limestone quarry; since then peace has returned and nature has crept in to steal it back for herself.
