There's a photograph of the farmhouse - before alterations - on page 321 of Heart of Northern Wales Vol2.  The alterations seem to be the two dormer windows which were probably added  in the early 1920s.

Washington Hotel - 1960's

Does anyone know who ran/managed the Washington Hotel which had a club on the second floor where a lot of jazz and R & R bands played in the early to mid 1960's. I am doing a bit of research and looking for any contracts, reviews etc. Thanks, tony.

No idea who ran it but I remember going to watch the Anglesey Strangers there.

just seen this thread. In 1966/7 it was run by the famous Charlie Payne of Payne's corner house amongst many other business. The manager was a thick set 40 year old of foreign extraction, possible Polish or Hungarian. I dont suppose for a moment he will read this, so , he had female tendencies.  I hated dealing with him, Im not afraid to state that I border on the homo phoebic,  and 45 years ago I was more than bordering on it, I just couldnt understand the mincing around.
 In case anone asks what I was doing there, one of my many money making ventures was running a cigarette vending machine business. Absolutely HUGH turnover, nothing to take 500 in a day off the various sites. Unfortunately the net profit was conversly TINY, touch and go whether I broke even.

Another well known purveyor of cigarettes was Harry Pinkerton better known as "Harry The Fag" who sadly passed on some years ago.   He later went on to operate a Winery in Builder Street and a darn fine selection of Wines, Ports and other tipples he had on offer.  That was when I used to enjoy the odd glass or two!

Thanks for responses. Would "Charlie Payne" still be around. Looking for files related to the Washington back around 1964. Thanks, Tony

From memory, it was a very pleasant walk of about 45 minutes from the car park to the Falls themselves,  and slightly less on the way back as it is predominantly downhill.

Well worth the walk in my opinion.

It's an easy walk along a good path with a gentle ascent to the Falls.  They are called Rhaeadr Fawr  (big waterfall) and as you approach them look to the right and  you can see Rhaeadr Bach  (little waterfall).
Well worth a visit and there is a nice cafe in the village if you want to go there afterwards.

              While walking through Penmaenmawr recently I took a diversion into Parc Plas Mawr which I had never visited before and had a walk around. There is a large stone situated on the grassed area by the ruins of a house with a memorial plaque on which are inscribed about a dozen names, with ages ranging from 7 months up to about 38 years I think. I asked a couple of folk who were walking their dogs if there was any local history concerning this memorial but they were unable to help me. I was wondering if anyone who lives in the Pen area could tell me if the memorial is of any special local significance as there are no dates or details other than the names on the plaque?
