Abergwyngregyn
Abergwyngregyn (known as Aber locally) is located between the Menai Strait and the foothills of Snowdonia in Gwynedd, North Wales. It sits between the towns of Bangor to the west and Llanfairfechan to the east. The village is best known for the magnificent Aber Falls located at the head of the Aber valley just a short walk from the village itself. The waters from the Carneddau range of mountains drop over 100 feet into the beautiful Aber Valley. The valley is popular with nature lovers, walkers, and especially bird watchers with a range of birds to be seen including buzzards, falcon, sparrow hawk, ravens, redstart along the woodland edge, and pied flycatcher and wood warbler in the oak woods. Follow the Afon Rhaeadr Fawr down the valley toward the Menai Strait and there is an abundance of sea birds to be seen on the Lavan Sands.
#8# Aber itself may not be a one horse town but a two road village is a fairly accurate description. But the size of Aber belies its historical importance. Aber Garth Celyn, as it was known, was of great strategic importance as it controlled the ancient crossing point of the Menai Strait via the Lafan Sands to Anglesey. There are important sites in the Aber valley and the surrounding hills showing evidence of occupation from prehistoric times through the Roman period, the Dark Ages and into medieval times. A walk into the hills reveals Maes y Gaer, a prehistoric settlement, the cairns of Carnedd y Saeson and Meuryn Isaf, the remains of an iron age round house close to the falls, and within the village itself are Llywelyn's Mound and the ancient manor house known as Pen y Bryn. The very roads and tracks echo with the footsteps of early Britons and indeed ancient Romans. The Roman Road, now a popular walk, from Aber to Rowen via Bwllch y Ddeufaen linked Roman Segontium in Caernarfon to the Roman settlement on the banks of the Conwy River. ....
