In the foreground is an embankment, part of the remains of a Great War training area. A system of trenches intended to replicate those found on the Western Front was constructed in 1915 for recruits from North Wales and the north west of England. The camp was known as Kinmel Camp, it had a capacity of over 20,000 trainees and included a 890-bed hospital. Thankfully, for entirely fortuitous reasons, the trench system was not returned to farmland and, in consequence, the trench lines are remarkably well preserved. Barely visible in the centre of this smartphone image is Rhuddlan Castle about 4 kilometres away.
