This is a moderate 6.25 mile (10km) walk but with a long drag of a hill on the return walk. It is located on the North Wales coast in Old Colwyn close to Colwyn Bay. You should allow 3 to 4 hours to complete the walk.<br>A good tip to take in to account is to check the tide tables for options for this walk. High tides offer the chance to view the quarry boats loading, whereas low tide enables the first section of the walk, Old Colwyn to Llanddulas, to be undertaken on the sands. If in any doubt take the cycle-path option.<br><br>This walk could also be called Traitor's Walk. Walk the route where the King of England was betrayed. In 1399 King Richard II of England was ambushed by Henry Bolingbrook's men at Penmaenhead. Richard was deposed and after incarceration in Pontefract Castle died in mysterious circumstances. The traitor Bolingbrook became King Henry IV of England. The act of treachery on Penmaenhead was to fan the flames of Owain Glyndwr's rebellion that spread throughout Wales and the border lands causing turmoil for the next decade and more, and ultimately to the Wars of the Roses.
