Anglesey coastal path grid-reference plaques to help walkers

Walkers on part of the Wales Coast Path will be able to check their exact position after the installation of plaques detailing grid references.

The signs, on the Isle of Anglesey, will also feature Welsh place names to spark interest in the locality.

The Friends of the Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path is funding the scheme, which was prompted by a meeting with Coastguard staff. The Welsh Place Name Society is also involved in providing the information on the plaques.

The Friends said the project aims to promote safety along the path following concerns expressed by the Holyhead Coastguard while also drawing attention to some local place-names along the coastal path.

The 225km Wales Coast Path attracts many thousands of people to some of the most stunning and remote areas of the Welsh coastline. As the numbers of walkers increase, the Friends of the Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path said they are eager to ensure that people who find themselves in difficulties can accurately report their position to the Coastguard.
