This is a moderate circular walk from which you can enjoy views over the ancient town of Conwy and it’s famous bridge begins at the Deganwy Railway Station and takes you to Castell Deganwy which has been associated with Maelgwn, a powerful 6th century ruler of Gwynedd.
Castell Deganwy has been associated with Maelgwn. Maelgwn was famously dubbed ‘the dragon of the Isle’ by English chronicler Gildas – a reference to a beast of the Apocalypse and the king’s strong connections with Anglesey. Following centuries saw a succession of powers occupy, fortify and then destroy Castell Deganwy, in several cases to prevent it falling into enemy hands.
If you walk up to the castle today, you will see the bases of a pair of towers, one on each of the twin peaks, and a wall connecting the two.
