Many thanks for the compliments for this set of photos but I have a bit of a confession. I forgot the "wonder" camera that day and had to use a phone that I had received free with a computer I bought.
Most of the photos I took had a finger across the corner of the picture and had to be deleted! I had never taken a photo with a phone before and wasn't quite aware of where the lens was. Lesson learned, not very technical.

Yesterday's Express ran the article, whoever took the pic that they printed made the building look more like a skip than ever !

Yes, it's had a lot of coverage. As well as the BBC and Daily Express, the Guardian, Telegraph, Daily Mail and even CNN have run stories about the Carbuncle Cup, mentioning (and including photo of) Porth Eirias.

The Daily Mail & Guardian used one of my photos (see below) - which shows off its skip-like qualities:

I was having nose around Porth Eirias today, I see vandals have smashed one of the windows in the 'cafe' area already and it is boarded up.  &shake&

Hello. I understand a delivery vehicle allegedly caused the damage not vandals.

Thing is, it's in an area where no vehicles can access? It's on the seaward walkway side, not the access road side.

I take it you mean the Beach, rather than the Watersports Centre?  The Beach is a fantastic asset to the town. Just a shame that we don't have a building alongside it that, you know, actually does something? Maybe provide some employment, attractions for visitors, generate some tax revenues...I know, it's just wishful thinking on my part.  :laugh:

They have allowed a mobile catering (sic) van to spoil the general view so that one can, at least, get a cuppa!   :D

More than !!
My Oh was sitting on a bench in town when an elderly chap next to him suddenly said. 'Draw your feet in quick--here come the red arrows.' Sure enough along came 3 mobility scooters in a line at rapid speed !! :o
