China Clay works, Porth Llanlleiana
China Clay works, Porth Llanlleiana
Signs of former industry here on a remote stretch of the Anglesey coast. Clay was extracted from the cliffs nearby and quartzite was quarried and crushed. There was a kiln within the main building and a flue to the nearby chimney. Stretching off to the right is the curve of a flat, marshy valley which cuts off Llanlleiana headland from the rest of Anglesey. Other such valleys can be found on the north coast of Pembrokeshire and even in north Devon, and all are the result of glacial meltwaters cutting deep channels.
