Bodysgallen Obelisk

August 11, 2014   

As you pass the exits for Llandudno you will see an obelisk on the top of the hill.

The 64-foot obelisk was built as a folly in 1993 by the owners of the Bodysgallen Hall hotel. It is located in a meadow on a limestone ridge above a former quarry on Pydew mountain. The meadow has been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest on account of its grassland and flowering plants. Initially the folly met with fierce local opposition but it is now an accepted landmark.
