Living in Gaerwen: The local area guide

Located on the Isle of Anglesey, Gaerwen boasts a relaxed and rural village feel and is just moments away from a multitude of beautiful landscapes.

Combining old and new, the village boasts two historic, disused windmills and a modern industrial estate. The village is probably most famous for its historic station - the southernmost station of the Anglesey Central Railway. The station operated between 1864 and 1993 but is no longer in use.

Gaerwen is set to develop even further in coming years with its new Science Park. Led by Bangor University, the park, which is set to be home to low carbon and renewable energy businesses, has already been awarded £10m from the Welsh Government. Of course, this will be great for the economy and job prospects in Gaerwen and the rest of the island with the park seeing up to 700 roles based there in the long term.

The development of the Science Park is huge for Gaerwen, which is otherwise a quiet and quaint village. Elsewhere in the village residents will find a small selection of public houses, a fish and chip shop, along with essential amenities including a McColl's newsagents.

Demographics

While the population may grow in coming years, due to the development of the new Science Park, it’s currently assessed to be around 1,551 – according to 2011 census data. While the majority of residents in Gaerwen are White English, other ethnic groups include Mixed White/Black Caribbean, Mixed White/Black African, Mixed White/Asian, Indian and Chinese.

Further data from the 2011 census showed that the majority of residents were employed in full-time or part-time jobs, while many residents were also self-employed.

The property landscape offers up a whole range of housing types and sizes, the most common being three bedroom houses.

Education

A great area for families and young children, Gaerwen is served by a number of good schools. There’s a primary school in the village itself, Ysgol Esceifiog, as well as a choice of secondary schools nearby. And for those looking for a local university, Bangor University can be found just over the bridge a few miles away.

In its 2014 inspection by Estyn, Ysgol Esceifiog found all areas of the school and its curriculum to be ‘good’, marking both the school’s current performance and prospects for improvement at this level.

Secondary school choices include Ysgol Gyfun Llangefni in Llangefni, and Ysgol David Hughes by Menai Bridge. Both schools are easily accessible and located within a 10-minute drive from Gaerwen.

Transport

Whether you want to drive, hop on a bus, or get on the train to travel further afield, there’s plenty of great transport options nearby. Gaerwen itself has a number of local bus services running in and out of the village, while the nearest railway station, which offers great routes throughout the country, is located in nearby Llanfairpwllgwyngyll.

Getting around the Isle of Anglesey and out to the rest of North Wales is easy too. The A5 runs through the village, and the A55 runs just a few hundred metres north.
