The Rhos-on-Sea Heritage Walk is the work of Heritage Group member Ian Reid, who introduces the walk:
“This guide aims to take you on a tour of the attractive village of Rhos-on-Sea and introduce you to its surprisingly rich historic heritage. Rhos has strong associations with an astonishing variety of historical periods and events starting with Roman times, but also including the time of the Celtic saints, the Middle Ages and then Elizabethan times right through to the present day.
Use this walk to discover many fascinating buildings and historic sites and learn about the interesting people who are associated with some of them. The core of the Walk will take about an hour centred on the promenade. Three optional extensions have been added for those with more time and energy. The complete walk, including the delightful trail to the Bryn Euryn hill fort, (well worth it for the superb views alone) would take between 3 and 3½ hours. As the route is circular, it can be joined at any point. Directions are in blue and points of interest are given a number, so it’s easy to follow.
There are a number of excellent cafés and teashops in the centre of Rhos, and you will pass some pubs on the walk, all serving food, so rest and refreshment should be readily available. You will also pass several benches if you would like some additional pauses so as to take in the pleasant atmosphere!”
