Historic background

A landscape of improved pasture and planted coverts along the Menai Straits and reaching up to the summit of the ridge that runs parallel to it. Much of the area was formerly an ecclesiastical medieval township, based around the church on the side of the Straits, entirely altered by the Vaynol estate.

Key historic landscape characteristics

Regular fields, woodland, farms

A managed landscape, near the Vaynol demesne, evidently developed for shooting. Farm buildings are substantially constructed out of local stone.
