Welcome to the Rhoscolyn community website. It has been developed to serve the local community of Rhoscolyn and Four Mile Bridge and its visitors.
We hope you will have a good look round it. We want it to promote the image of the area, and to help everyone to make the most of what it has to offer. Rhoscolyn is a beautiful village, with fine sandy beaches and lovely countryside. With its sheltered bay, Borth Wen, it is a great spot for families as well as for sailors, kayakers and walkers. And the views from its two headlands are spectacular. Its beautiful church, St Gwenfaen’s, sits proudly on the hill overlooking the village and the sea. The very popular White Eagle, which serves some of the best food on Anglesey, is on the lane down to the beach.
On this Rhoscolyn website you will also find some history and general background, including the facilities on offer locally, places to visit and things to see.
We aim to keep the information on the site up to date and to add to it; please do send us your thoughts, ideas, suggestions. And best of all, your contributions. Such as stories and photographs for the News, Nature Watch and History pages, or your themed photographs for the Gallery. There is a contact link in the footer.
The Gallery theme for this edition is COLD – for which there were a lot of great contributions – see them on the Gallery page. But here is a selection of three very different ones. The first by Caro Wilson, and the second two by Clare Venner (left) and her sister (Alison Shadbolt).

The theme for the March Gallery is SPRING. We have had it before – a while back now, but it is very appropriate with Spring around the corner. In fact, January with its strange weather patterns has proved to be quite spring-like as you will see on the Nature page. SPRING doesn’t of course have to be the season though. It can be the act of springing, a spring, or anything else you can think of. Then, to give you a head start, April’s theme is going to be WATER – fresh water as opposed to sea water this time. So rivers, streams, pools, puddles, waterfalls…… whatever you like for that theme.
BUT PLEASE PLEASE name your pictures – your name and the page or section it is aimed for – SO: name, Gallery theme Spring or Water; Or: name, Nature page. And for the latter or any other pages, please in your covering note tell me what/where the picture is of. And even better, put in the subject of your email that it is for XXX page of the Website. If you want to know how to name your actual photos before sending them to me, there are guidelines on the Gallery page.
