Surf Point (Sausage Castle)

Built between 1906 and 1908, Surf Point is known colloquially as Sausage Castle – having been built for the sausage manufacturer C.H. Palethorpe of Palethorpe’s which, at the turn of the 20th century, claimed to be the largest producer of sausages in the world. The Grade II listed building is a castellated ‘folly’ designed to resemble a sandcastle, and represents a shift for the village of Rhosneigr – which began to be seen as a resort destination at around the same time.

The building overlooks Traeth Crigyll and, at the border of the property and the beach, a matching crenelated sea wall – also Grade II listed – was constructed to complement Surf Point itself. While the property cannot be visited, it is a prominent landmark and, along with its sea wall, is among the most photographed places in the village.

Where is it?

Located at the coast, overlooking Traeth Crigyll, Surf Point can only be reached via a single track lane off the A4080, Station Road. However, the best view of the landmark is from the beach – and the best place on the beach can be reached in just a few minutes from The Surf Café.
