We were really looking forward to re-visiting Tomen y Mur ruins for a family walk in the Welsh mountains, but arrived to find that local farmers had blocked the car park - (fair enough during lockdown) - but hadn't cleared it again, even 3 weeks after lockdown ended! So parking was difficult on the nearby roads and we had to wait for someone else to leave first! Still a nice visit to the Roman ruins and Norman mound exploring history. Lots to see and explore - even second time around.

At my age I can only visit virtually, thanks to descriptions and photographs by others but I can just imagine the Roman soldiers looking forward to a hot bath and the - er- other attractions!

High in the hills of Ffestiniog stands this Roman Auxiliary fort. It commands the nearby Roman roads through the region and gives excellent views of the area. As well as the fort there is a bath house a small arena (ludus) a Roman inn (mansio) and the site of a Roman bridge. The Tomen is a Norman Motte, built inside the Roman forts walls.

It isn't easy to find but definitely worth the walk to the top, not just for the fort itself but the view will leave you speechless. There is information on the way around the site which brings the whole thing to life. It is a shame that it has no signage to help people find it! The view of the old power station from the top reminds you that all things can end!

After visiting Segontium we made our way down to this fort. The fort itself was outstanding but the views made it even better. Absolutely outstanding!
