Who can tell me anything about the history of Llangwstenin/Llangystennin Hall?

I remember seeing some info about it, I will have a look when I get home and see if I can find it. There's not a lot out there, though, which is odd for such an old house.

Thanks Dave. I'd be delighted if you could. I've always taken it was something to do with the Mostyns, but as you say there's a dearth of info. $wales

As is always the way, the info I remember wasn't in the book I thought it was. When I eventually come across it again, I shall post it on here. And if you find out anything, please do post it on the forum.  :)

I was out running Marine Drive late on this afternoon and as I approached the toll booth just up from the Pier there was a goat stuck in the cattle grid.  I don't know how long he had been there but he seemed quite exhausted.  He was a big lump of a billy goat with big horns.  I managed to get him by the horns and a passing cyclist got hold of his back legs and we hauled him out and let him go and he ran off.
Just for future reference, had I not been able to get him out, who should I have called?   Jack   $thanx$

I'm sorry but I can't resist saying 'Goatbusters'

to be serious though I would think the RSPCA should be able to help, I am fond of goats so i would also have got him out if I'd seen him in distress, on the goat's behalf, thankyou

Is there an emergency phone number for the RSPCA (like 999 for helping animals!) or would you have to ring the centre in Bryn Y Maen?  I must put the number in my phone just in case it ever happens again.

I've used that phone number twice. Once for a fox cub, that had been injured on the path above the closed public toilets on Happy Valley Road and once for a large Billy Goat that had managed to impale itself on a long metal stake which had gone in under its breastbone and come out behind its ribcage. It took three of us to pull what in effect was a javelin, out of the beast. No blood, no ill effects and after being carted off by the RSPCA Inspector it was later released with no sign of damage. Hardy things our Great Orme Goats. If only they would stop eating my Garden.
