SH3994 : Glacial valley at Llanlleiana

Glacial valley at Llanlleiana
Glacial valley at Llanlleiana
A curving marshy valley that cuts off the Llanlleiana headland from the rest of Anglesey. This end is partly blocked by glacial debris, which causes the poor drainage. Such valleys were formed at the end of the last ice age when meltwaters found escape routes around ice margins. Similar features can be seen in north Pembrokeshire, where Dinas Island west of Newport is a fine example, whilst further inland, Cwm Gwaun is a similar valley on a much larger scale. Another example is the Valley of the Rocks near Lynton in North Devon.
