A small signaling cannon.
One way to get to the summit is by cable car.
The 'Great Orme Tramway' is a more comfortable way to travel. You have to change half-way though and board a second tram car.
Where the trains undergo engineering work.
The half-way sign.
The 'Historic Trail'.
Show me the sign where it says dogs are not allowed to drink beer. Well?
'Bishop's Quarry'. The Great Orme was also historically used for copper mining.

The roads to the top can be VERY steep!

The railway station. Very basic, but it is only at the end of a branch line.
Conwy is a "walled" market town. But the focus is upon the castle.
The streets are well worth exploring.
You can never be quite sure what you will encounter.
The castle sits next to the river. Expect to see boats of all types and sizes, old and new.
The boats. Some for working on, or with, and some just there for pleasure.
In the distance is Conwy Mountain.
You will not expect to see and modern buildings within the grounds of the castle.
Obviously not a family home.
Some great views from the ramparts.
Some of the views are quite striking.
The landscape around the castle is also very pleasing.
The railway station sits right at the edge of the town.
