About

Mynydd Marian is a small limestone ridge offering extensive views along the coast and inland across the rural landscape towards the distant mountains of Snowdonia and the Clwydians. The grassland flora is of special interest and a visit during early summer, especially May/June, is likely to be rewarded by displays of orchids and other grassland flowers. Mynydd Marian has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest because it is home to many rare plants and animals including hoary rockrose, spring cinquefoil, the silver-studded blue butterfly and tall, wafting upright brome grass.

Perched on top of Mynydd Marian is Telegraph House which was built in 1841. Telegraph House was one of a chain of twelve telegraph stations between Holyhead and Liverpool - relaying information to Liverpool Docks about approaching ships. The record for sending a message from Liverpool to Holyhead and receiving a reply back in Liverpool was 53 seconds! These days Telegraph House is a private residence. Mynydd Marian is just a short detour from the North Wales Path and is worth it for the views! With free car parking Mynydd Marian is also a good starting point to explore the surrounding countryside on foot.
