1st of 6 hills on a traverse from Mold to Holywell. I caught the bus from Holywell to Mold and then walked up to the top via a good path. The lower half of this park is cordoned off but it doesn't affect getting to the top. Some nice beech trees adorn the top. Continuation to Bryn-eithin...Dazingdale10/02/2024
