- The landmark innocuously marked as "beacon" on Ordnance Survey maps of the area just half a kilometre or so south-west of the little village of Rhosycaerau and easily visible from the coast path (from where the photograph above was taken) is in fact the Strumble Head VOR, a vital navigation landmark for trans-Atlantic aircraft and colloquially known as Green 1 among aviation enthusiasts who like to sound knowledgeable about this sort of thing.
