The skyline profile of Moel Famau gives it a special affection and pride of place in the hearts of many folk throughout North Wales, Cheshire and Merseyside.
The Jubilee Tower 200 celebrationof 2010 was a unique day in the history of this area of outstanding natural beauty. Thousands of people from all over the North West came along to process up the gentle slopes of the mountain and commemorate the bi-centenary of the laying of the foundation stone of the iconic monument at the summit..
This is the second part of a documentary film trilogy. It attempts to set down something of the people attending and the commemoration events at Moel Famau which took place on Sunday 24 October 2010.
The final, late afternoon-evening part, will include scenes, at the summit of the playing of the alpen horn, the samba bands and, of course, the closing firework displays.
Interviews included are with, David Hanson MP, Mark Isherwood AM and Arnold Woolley,Leader of FC Council
