Graig Fawr – Guardian of Meliden
Graig Fawr is the beginning of the 177 mile long Offa’s Dyke Path. A National Trust site, locally known as Meliden Mountain, it has become a site of special scientific interest due to that lack of agricultural interference on its steep slopes, which has allowed for semi-natural plant communities to thrive, and its limestone outcrops have attracted species more usually associated with sea cliffs. This is a unique and striking location to enjoy country hikes.

Meliden Mining Memorial
For over a hundred years, Meliden was a thriving and bustling mining community as coal was extracted from under the Dee estuary between 1883 and 1996. Even in ancient times as far back as the Romans, lead mines were active here. In light of this history, the Meliden Residents Action Group erected this monument in 2006, including within it, items and equipment from the old coal mines.

Moel Famau, Mold

Moel Famau
This has got to be one of North Wales best hill walks. The hill and surrounding country park is located in an area of natural beauty. The views from the Jubilee Tower at the peak are well worth the climb up. The walk is suitable for all age groups with a decent level of fitness.

My children started walking it when they were just three! Best place to start head out of Mold on the A494 pass through Loggerheads and you will see it signposted.
