5 minutes from the cafe on the road to the north. If its still there its well buried under the grass or under gorse. Nice views up here though.

I may have possibly located this surface block. Near to one of the rusty iron shackles is a patch of concrete which appears to be somewhat more recent than the other remains. I await somebody else digging it out more and/or confirming that it is the trig point in question. For more information about the North Wales Coast Semaphore System go to .

On the Moorlands in South Wales I have dug up a few blocks but I was not inclined to do this here as the area is of greater interest and far more populated.

Recorded in the OS database at a block. Nothing to see at the grid ref given. Its possibe that the grass has grown over it. Not much remains of the semaphore station to see either.

The site of the trig is in the heath land of the Great Ormes Head to the north of Llandudno. A block was computed here in 1956. The trig site was approached from the Rest and be Thankful Café on Marine Drive to the north. There was no sign of an OS block on the surface. Nearby a couple of rusty iron shackles were concreted into the ground. A wide expanse of the Irish Sea can be seen to the north. Anglesey is to the west. The North Wales coast stretches into the distance to the east. The interior of the headland and its summit complex are to the south. Some of the peaks of Snowdonia could be seen in the distance. Much of the headland, including this trig site, have been designated the Pen y Gogarth/ Great Ormes Head SSSI and a special area of conservation. The station was part of chain set up in 1826 to transmit information on ship movements from Holyhead to Liverpool. An old OS map marks a semaphore at the site. Site visited in 2010, logged June 4th 2011.
