Menter Môn was able to provide Rural Development Plan monies for the development through the Adfywio Pentrefol project, to help community groups to add value to communities through environmental enhancements schemes.

   


Ym mis Mawrth daeth tyrfa dda i agoriad swyddogol yr ardd gymunedol sydd wedi’i chysylltu ag afon Meddanen, gan ddarparu lle hyfryd a thrawiadol i’r preswylwyr a’r ymwelwyr gyda man eistedd ac arwyddion llawn gwybodaeth. Mae’n fan dymunol i dreulio amser ac mae pobl wedi manteisio ar y safle hwn dros fisoedd yr haf.

Pont y Plas - Llanfechell 

Dyma yw safle un o ffynhonnau hynaf y pentref a oedd yn cael ei defnyddio tan yr 1940au ac sy’n berchen i Gyngor Cymuned Mechell.

Datblygwyd y safle hwn fel prosiect man hamdden gan MENTER MECHELL yn 2013 gyda chymorth ariannol Grant Gwella Pentrefi gan Menter Môn at ddefnydd y preswylwyr a’r Ymwelwyr.

Mae henebion o’r cyfnod cyn-hanes yn yr ardal hon ar ffurf meini hirion gan gynnwys yr unig enghraifft y gwyddys amdani sydd mewn grŵp o dri. Saif Eglwys Mechell Sant, sy’n dyddio o’r 12 ganrif, yng nghanol y pentref a dethlir gŵyl Mechell ar 15 Tachwedd.

Un o feibion enwocaf y pentref yw’r dyddiadurwr William Bulkeley (1691-1760) a fu’n byw ym Mrynddu. Ymysg unigolion nodedig eraill Llanfechell roedd y Parch. John Elias, pregethwr grymus a oedd yn cael ei adnabod fel y “Pab Methodistaidd”, a’r mathemategwr arloesol William Jones.
