HRS 500 Great Orme from Moelfre

The view taken looking eastward from Moelfre on Anglesey shows the Carboniferous limestone headland of the Great Orme at Llandudno on the horizon. There is much conjecture about the origin of the name Orme, but recent thinking suggests it is a corruption of Horn or headland. The near vertical cliffs on the left of the image are as a result of ice movement during the Ice Age along the Irish Sea coast.
