Wonder what will happen to Steve Hunt's Jaguar, which I think is still stored in the landward building by the front doors?

Work has begun to try to save historical murals from the pavilion of Colwyn Bay's pier as it is demolished.

Work by war artist Eric Ravilious and murals by painter Mary Adshead formed part of the decoration inside the art deco pavilion when it was constructed in 1934.
Experts initially said the murals would be impossible to remove but staff are working to retain them.

Conwy council conservation staff have already saved one wall of Ravilious's mural and are hopeful they can save a second section.
The most important motifs from Adshead's murals have also been carefully removed.

For what reason?   What a complete waste of time and money.
The Pier itself was the real treasure, but no one seemed to think that was worth spending money on.
Itís a crime, and theyíve got away with it.   &shake& $angry$

I'd rather they spent the money on building a bit more of the new pier.

Driving back towards Rhos from the Old Colony end and the A55 exit on to the prom late last night it was the first time I have driven that way for some time. The huge sweep of the bay was really impressive now the pier has gone.Sad it ended up the way it did but it had become an unacceptable eyesore beyond repair at a reasonable cost In my humble opinion.
