Conwy Castle with two Bobbies in the foreground.

I was wondering what the fenced off circle area was to the right of the picture. Surely there was no mini roundabout at that location in those days?  ?{}?

Talking of Steamers Trojan

I remember reading one of my dads book ages ago. I read the story of the Rothsay (castle) steamer. It left liverpool docks 1831 and ran aground by Puffin Island. Two fellas one old and one young found themselves clinging to the same plank of wood as the steamer sank. it soon became apparent that the plank would not support the pair of them, the old man wanted to let go to save the life of the young man, and the young man felt vice versa. They both let go of the plank at the same time.  both thinking the other had died they were reunited on the beach at Puffin Island.

Now how heroic is that, I have to be honest people, I hope you don't ever end up on the opposite side of my sinking piece of plank, 'cos I'll tell you now, I will have a better excuse to live and I'll kick harder lol  :-* _))* L0L

I would have had an even better excuse to live.

I would have changed into my divers suit with the help of my shopkeeper friend before I even set foot on the boat.  8)

I asked a friend of mine what the fenced circle was he said it was just a small garden feature.

Seems such a small garden for such a big castle.  8)
