Further Information

The 29 m tall Trwyn Du (Black Point) Lighthouse was established by Trinity House in 1838. It became unmanned in 1922 and in 1996 it was converted to use solar power.

Puffin Island (Ynys Seiriol) is privately owned by the Baron Hill Estate and is a Special Protection Area on account of its birdlife. The 6th century saint, Seiriol, founded a monastic community on the island, and there are ruins there of medieval buildings.
