Maps and signs

Dotted around Newborough Forest and the Nature Reserves you’ll find a variety of maps and information signs. Often it would be nice to see the signs before you arrive, to help you plan your visit, so here they come. Click on an image to see a bigger (readable) version. In addition, Anglesey Council’s definitive map of public rights of way can be found here.

(for a long time I thought the symbol on the Bike Quest route markers was a squashed frog, which seemed a bit tasteless even if it was appropriate. Turns out it's actually a great crested newt!)

The three signs above have been updated this year (2017), but the info is much the same, so I haven’t changed the pictures.

This is the new (2017) introduction to Newborough sign:

The rather old and a little tatty orienteering map for the forest – the red and white marker posts are still in place around the forest, but the routes are becoming more and more overgrown.

Natural Resources Wales’ information about Newborough is available here. Sadly, they decided not to host all the pre-NRW leaflets and guides (wrong branding, etc) and nor is the old Forestry Commission information available anymore.

The Welsh Government’s leaflet “Walking Newborough” is available as a pdf (1.6MB) for free download via the Forestry Commission website at the link above [that link now seems to have been removed and the leaflet hasn’t been published on the NRW site – at the moment, the only information they have can be found here, but it’s not especially helpful:( – no substitute for a map].
