Cymryd, LL32 8UA, SH79227586
Cymryd is a seventeenth century manor house on the Cymryd peninsula on the west bank of the Conwy river about a mile south of Conwy Castle. It has a well established garden, access to the tidal riverbank via a green lane and, on the inland side, an area of semi-natural woodland which has been securely fenced for many years. The property is Grade II listed and is owned by the National Trust. On May 19th low tide will be at 11:10 hrs giving easy access to the riverbank during the morning. After lunch in the garden we will visit the woodland.
From Conwy Castle go under the railway arch along the B5106. After 400m take the left turn into the housing estate then take the fifth left turn into Bryn Seiri Road. Go up the road (quite steep and narrow), over the hill and down the other side. The turn for the top of the drive to Cymryd is on the left at SH78677573. I will put a Cofnod Recorders' Day notice at the top of the drive. There is ample parking.
Details to follow.

New members and those who have not been on a BSBI meeting before are especially welcome.
