THE BAILEY Hill partnership has spoken out about the issue of increased dog fouling at the Flintshire beauty spot. 

Bailey Hill, an 11th century Norman motte-and-bailey castle, is a Scheduled Ancient Monument site situated in a conservation area in the centre of Mold.

The park is managed by a group including Flintshire County Council, Mold Town Council and local charity Friends of Bailey Hill.

A statement on Bailey Hill's social media read: "As part of the redevelopment work which has taken place at Bailey Hill over the last few years - additional dog waste bins have been installed.

"Unfortunately, recently we have been experiencing an increase in dog mess throughout the park.

"This is especially upsetting as we currently have a Forest School running and a number of children visiting every week.


"Bailey Hill is a dog friendly park and we love to see all four legged visitors.

"If visiting the park with your dog, please make use of the dog waste bins provided."

The park has recently undergone a huge amount of redevelopment work to improve the site and the facilities available for visitors.
