About a year ago, this question was asked on the forum.... but got no replies.

A shame, because it would have been nice to have heard a few spooky stories,  and given all the shambling, historic old buildings in Llandudno/Conwy I thought there would have been quite a good response.

Plas Mawr in Conwy is reputedly haunted, but the 'Most Haunted' TV investigation which was held there was very boring indeed.

Not long after Michael Jackson passed, his supposed ghost was apparently seen on an American news reel, whilst they were filming inside his Neverland mansion. Maybe his presence has been 'etched' into the immediate surroundings?

I was just reading through this thread and thought I don't remember reading this post about Michael Jacksons ghost.....so I had a look and nearly had a cardiac arrest, seriously sharp intake of breath.  even Stuart the manager in the Albion now, says he has items going missing and moving from one place to another.

The Bridge (Interesting, strange read)

This is (was) going to be short, but the memory sprung into my mind a couple days back and I thought it would be worth sharing.
I live in North Wales, UK. For anyone who has had the pleasure of visiting, it truly is a beautiful place to live, though, for an adolescent boy, it is certainly lacking in things to do. As a result, my friends and I would often find ourselves mindlessly exploring areas of countryside and coastline.
Despite it being quite sparsely populated, in comparison to the closest cities, there is a dual carriageway running right along the coast from Wales into England. Also, train tracks run alongside this road for most of its course, occasionally passing overhead via a small cement bridge.
Anyway, there was one night a few years ago, when about four of us randomly decided to try and explore the inside of one of these bridges, as one of the group had observed a man-hole cover nearby which we believed to be the entrance. On closer inspection, we discovered that several tools would be required in order to gain entry.
We returned with the necessary equipment and proceeded to unbolt the cover. This had to be done stealthily as the train track was right beside us, not close enough to be of any danger, but definitely a sufficiently small distance to cause panic for any train driver. And panic usually means Police.
It wasn't long before we had removed the heavy steel disc, and had started descending the ladder down into the structure. Once we had all safely reached the bottom, we decided to progress to the other side. At this point, we are totally confined into the narrow space that leads into the main area. If you are confused as to what the hell this 'bridge' is supposed to be, you probably should be, because it was rather peculiar. I mean, I would have never known there was even an inside had we not found the man-hole.
So, as we squeeze and crouch, and at one point scrape along our bellies, to the other side of the structure there is a growing sense of claustrophobia between us. The distance from end to the other is surprisingly long, but by the halfway point you can look down through narrow gaps onto the motorway below. This was actually pretty cool, which helped keep us calm, in a strange way.
At this point, apart from the mild discomfort and confinement, we were still just a group of guys on an adventure. This was about to change dramatically.
No more than a few metres beyond halfway (which we could tell due to the symmetry of the passageways through the bridge), one of us claimed they could see some object in the distance at the far end. Slightly hesitantly, we agreed to investigate. Bad move.
I reached the end first, and let me tell you, I have never felt the same sense of dread before or since. In front of me was a single fold-away chair positioned facing a wall. On the wall was a partially torn page from a newspaper, or a magazine, showing a fully naked lady in an erotic position. The reason I don't just refer to it as 'porn' is because something was different about it; I can't put my finger on it but it seemed more sinister than sexy, if that makes any sense.
More disturbingly the eyes of the woman on display had been cut from the page. Removed with precision, not just hastily ripped off. The scene that lay before us had rendered us completely speechless, and an overpowering sense of panic could be felt collectively. That was when we found the condom. The horrendous, gut-wrenching, blood-drenched condom.
Needless to say we got the feck out of there as fast as humanly possible, smashing our knees and shins against the sharp cement edges, that lined the path to the ladder by which we had entered. Of course, we were all praying to God that the man-hole hadn't been re-sealed, as it was impossible to tell until you reached the ladder itself. Thankfully the exit route was clear, and we promptly dashed as far away as our legs could carry us.
I'm sure this ending comes as a disappointment to some of you reading this, as we (luckily) never bumped into the twisted individual who sits in that chair, but I must stress how radically out of the norm this was given where I live. The reason I mentioned the population earlier was with purpose; there is easily enough people here to escape the realms of 'crazy country folk', yet nowhere near enough people to have someone clearly lose grip on society without somebody taking notice. For example, there was literally only one homeless man, who everyone in the area knew and grew fond of, eventually resulting in a mass gathering at his funeral when he passed away.
I sometimes think, though not recently as I had more-or-less forgotten about that night entirely, about the person who climbs down into that bridge and navigates through the darkness to sit facing a wall, and do God-knows-what, that ends up with a condom full of blood. You honestly couldn't envision a more surreal situation.
It has just come to my realisation that what we unearthed that night has not once been uttered to another soul. As a naive teenager, it was the type of thing you just wanted to forget, but thinking about we probably should have let the Police, or at least someone know about what was down there, because it wasn't the doings of a healthy-minded individual.
So, there you have it. Apologies for the length, I got a little carried away as it is my first LNM post and I wanted to make the reading experience as similar to the reality as I could. Now I'm a few years older, and hopefully a bit braver, I'm considering going down there again, accompanied of course, to see what fucked up doggy doos might be waiting. This could well happen in the next couple days, and rest assured I will 100% post an update as I currently have no job, so time is plentiful!
Thanks for reading.
EDIT: As promised, here are the photos from the return visit. We went early evening, so there was still plenty of light, and as a result I have decided to use a simple filter on most of the outdoor shots, simply to reduce the light, and give it the eeriness it deserves.
Unfortunately, I hadn't adequately conveyed my plans to those accompanying me, and they had presumed I just wanted to check out the small area before the entrance to the passageways, as they had been there before. When I expressed my wishes to navigate through the bridge, they instantly nope'd the feck out of there! As you can imagine, I was massively disappointed. I hope to go back soon with a different bunch of guys, but I can't promise when.
Perhaps, if everyone who would like to see the re-return visit, just leaves a single comment saying 'Update', I could reply to you individually so you don't have to keep checking back, just wait for a message? Just a thought.
Either way, the pictures are definitely worth your time! Thanks again guys :)
EDIT 2
The Bridge; Revisited
Here are the pictures taken from last nights' return to The Bridge. This will be the last time I venture down there. Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoy...

Replying to Pendragon re. Albion. I can confirm all of what Pendragon said about Albion ghosts. Without hearing about it before, I have had heard rowdy discussions in the pub at 3am, gone to check what was going on and nothing but darkness and an empty pub. Things get moved from room to room all the time. At first I was a little scared, but now it's mainly irritating. Whistling!! I coughed into my cup of tea when I just read that! yesterday, someone kept whistling quite loud behind me when I was cleaning and at one point I was so unnerved, I dashed upstairs. Heavy boots on the tiles in the hallway- when there is no-one there All The Time. Bottles and glasses seemingly jump off the shelves, this happens that often now that customers are shocked when it happens, but us working just shrug it off! (apart from when a glass just glanced past a barmans' head, that was a little worrying).

Hmmm, perhaps the TV show 'Most Haunted' should have done its investigation in The Albion Pub.

Instead of Plas Mawr, where nothing at all happened, it was rubbish and a waste of time.

I joined this forum because I googled 'albion conwy ghost' as I was so intrigued. Flabbergasted when I read what pendragon had written. Exactly the same things as I experienced.
Very odd.
I had to put in my tuppence-worth. Apart from strange things happening, I still (on the whole) feel quite relaxed in the building. We have had a couple of nice things happen too, which eases ones' mind.

A seldom used thread this, especially since everyone has a digital camera or iPhone these days, ghosts have become redundant.
But, I did like this picture of an 'apparition' caught at Plas Rhianfa recently

I liked the close up pic, in the lower part of the article.   Of course it won't be a ghost but it's nice to have something intriguing an unexplained to discuss.
