I drove past this at first without seeing it, but then got a good view of it from much further away. It appears to be quite tall, but I understand that you cannot visit it close up. It is quite impressive from a distance.

What do you say about a column. Erected to honour the Marquess of Anglesey, it is tall, proud, and can be seen for miles around.

Sadly this attraction has been closed for years although you can still access the car park. The monument is in a poor state of repair but still looks magnificent.

This attraction is closed due to dangerous steps. No plans as far as I know for it to open. This ia a great shame as it gave great views of the island and Snowdonia.

The Marquess of Anglesey's Column was actually closed when we were there even though it wasn't supposed to be. Missed one of the high lights of the journey for that reason according to my friend.
