Images from walks in North Wales

Moel Famau

Topped by the Jubilee Tower, Moel Famau (Welsh for ‘Mother Mountain’) is the highest point in the Clwydian Range. Standing at 554 metres (1818 feet) above sea level, it attracts people from near and far looking for the ‘great outdoors’ experience.

The main trails to the top can be very busy, but get away from them and you’ll see far fewer people. (Or try Foel Fenlli – a shorter, steeper walk from the top car park, but much quieter than Moel Famau and with great views.)

The original tower was erected to celebrate the golden jubilee of King George III. The foundation stone was laid in October 1810 and the current incarnation is a result of work carried out in 2013.
