Yesterday, we visited the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty ( see http://www.clwydianrangeanddeevalleyaonb.org.uk/where-is-the-aonb-/) which was fairly recently extended into Llangollen and beyond. The diamond refers to the shape on the map joining Wrexham, Denbigh, Ruthin and Mold. We went to all four to seek out antiques. On the way home we diverted via the downhill stretch of the Horseshoe Pass, into Llangollen and skirting past one of my favourite ruins, Castell Dynas Bran

What a superb photograph ! The Castel ruin can be seen in the distance atop the mound. It’s a challenging climb up, so be warned ! I think the photo is taken from World’s End. My father trained in Surveying there and nearby when I was a small boy.
