View of Moel Famau or Fama in Wales. At approximately 1820 feet high the Moel Famau is the highest mountain on the Clwydian hills. The name translates as ‘Mother of Mountains’. The monument to the right of the picture is situated on the road between what is now Loggerhead’s Park and Cadole (A494). The archway surrounds a small stone known as Carreg Carn March Arthur and is said to show the imprint of King Arthur’s horse hoof as he leapt from a nearby cliff to escape the invading Saxons. The inscribed tablet declares that this monument also marks the boarder between the parishes of Llanverras and Mold.
