Roman Helmet, Prestatyn
Near The Beaches Hotel
Hillside Sculpture celebrates Roman Heritage in Prestatyn. Situated on Prestatyn Hillside is a stunning artwork in the shape of Roman Helmet, which has been embossed with pictures of Sessile Oak leaves. Prestatyn High School students workshopped this bold design with Cod Steak’s Design company, incorporating what they thought was important about Prestatyn. The Sessile Oak Tree, is common to the area of Prestatyn and is symbolic of strength and resilience. Built in 2009, this sculpture marks is a reward for those walking the final stretch of Offa’s Dyke Trail Path.
Roman Heritage in Prestatyn
Evidence of Roman presence from over 2,000 years ago was excavated in 1984 with the discovery of the Roman Bath House on Melyd Avenue.
From Prestatyn, this is a very steep walk and we recommend extra care when approaching. There is one bench for you to catch your breath and enjoy the view. If you don’t wish to take your car, walk straight up the high street to the top then continue forward straight up Ffordlas, past the Cross Foxes and straight to the Roman Helmet. For those with a little energy left, continue up past the helmet and get to the Prestatyn Hillside view point.
