    • Usually you can feel the history oozing out of these old buildings, but for some reason Flint council thought it would be an even greater tourist attraction if they surrounded it with a council estate..

  1. When I visited Flint Castle, I was surprised how great it was. There’s lots to see with several towers etc and it would be great for photographers with lots of interesting angles. It’s about 50 minutes from Betws-y-Coed – going over the Denbigh moors would take a bit longer but it is a fabulous drive.

    • denbigh moors is one of my favourite ways into snowdonia doesnt matter how many times you drive over them they are never the same 🙂 love your blog, 🙂

  2. Thanks for the inspiration. I would like to pass the very inspiring blog award to you. It is on my new post! If there is a problem with the copy and paste let me know. My settngs are acting weird!

  3. I lived in Brandon in East Anglia during the mid 1960s. Our exterior walls of our small rented home were made entirely of flint stones mined in flint mines near our place. The house was ancient. The owner had a photocopy of the original deed which was granted by the King of England. I remember that it was easy to just remove a flint stone and you could look right into the house. Not much insulation, just a bit of protection from the wind and rains.
