Welshman Noel Morgan chanced upon what appeared to be a large slumbering dragon on an Anglesey beach renowned more for romance than winged serpents. A retired BT engineer from York, he was visiting his childhood home in Newborough when he made his remarkable discovery on Ynys Llanddwyn.
“I was taking photos of the island’s rock formations,” he said. “At the time I was struck more by their red colour than their shapes. It was only when I got back home that I realised one of them showed what appeared to be a dragon. I showed friends and they all instantly recognised there was a dragon in the photo.”
Noel christened the rocks the “Sleeping Red Dragon”. He came across it between Twr Bach (Little Tower) and Twr Mawr (Big Tower) on the western tip of Ynys Llanddwyn.
“I must have hit the beach at the right time, when the tide was out,” he said. “I’ve been there many times before and I’d not seen this rock formation before.”
