A collection of pictures and videos taken on the way up to Pen Dinas peak and back down again. Includes pictures of Aberystwyth harbour and castle, the National Library of Wales, the Aber beaches, Constitution Hill, Alexandra Halls, The Royal Pier and some amazing sunsets. Also, there's some good pics and vids of the Napoleonic tower (if you're too lazy to go and see it for yourself!).

Bryngaer Pen Dinas Hill-fort
The Hillfort height is 413 feet, positioned to the south of the town, is easily distinguished by a tall column upon it. This is in the shape of a cannon on end and was erected in commemoration of the Battle of Waterloo by a local landowner who was present as an officer on the field.

Long before the Normans began their castle-building program, Iron Age settlers used the hilltop called Pen Dinas to build a huge hillfort (one of the largest in Wales) which still dominates the skyline as you approach Aberystwyth from the south. Consisting of two adjacent fortified areas, each roughly oval in plan. The fort was excavated some years ago and the yield in the way of finds consisted of fragments of iron implements, spindle whorls, tubular fragments of bronze, a stone bead and a very rare type of glass bead.
