Historic background

An area which formed part of the Penrhyn estate from the eighteenth century but which is traditionally connected with the city of Bangor.

Key historic landscape characteristics

Dispersed settlement

An intrusive area of rock, afforested on its slopes, immediately adjacent to the City of Bangor but hardly developed at all, with the exception of St Mary’s Teacher Training College. The upper parts of the Mountain are given over to a network of small irregular fields and winding lanes.
