Moel Famau




Moel Famau is a hill and country park in Denbighshire, Wales (though its peak is shared with Flintshire, since the border between the two counties runs through it).

The park is an important part of the Clwydian Range Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The heather provides food and shelter for wildlife, such as Red Grouse, European Stonechat and Eurasian Curlew.

The remains of the Jubilee Tower are at the highest point in the park, and indeed the whole of the Clwydian Range, at 554 m (1818 ft). It was built to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of George III. A storm in 1862 reduced the impressive Egyptian-style monument to the base that can be seen today.

The park covers an area over 2000 acres (8 km�) and is managed by Denbighshire Countryside Service. The service improves the heather moorland, dry stone walls and access paths and provides information and facilities for visitors. Forestry Enterprise manage the neighbouring forest as a sustainable conifer plantation for timber production and tourism.

On a clear day, it is possible to see the Isle of Man, and much of the North West of England such as Liverpool, Manchester, Winter Hill, Blackpool Tower and Cumbria.
