Well done Spotty Dog, it is the Marquess of Anglesey column



I had an e-mail from Tellytubby tonight that made me think of the time we went up the Column.    Tellytubby, Rhuddlan and I were one of the last ones to go to the top of the column before it closed.   It's well worth the trip up there when it reopens

The staircase was deemed unsafe and the article said that the column was closed in March 2012,  yet I've looked at my photos and they were taken on 26th Feb 2014.       ???

You've got a good memory then Spotty Dog to remember the statue after so long.   I was nearly 70 when I went up it for the first and only time but I'll do it again when it reopens as the views are superb on a good day.
Thanks for your good wishes and I hope that you have a Happy Christmas and a good and healthy New Year

I was once told the Duke had the largest erection on Anglesey.  ;)

Is it the Cwm Prysnor viaduct?

It's a very good guess Hollins but it's not the viaduct in Cwm Prysor

Is this the Pontrhydyfen bridge made famous by Richard Burton?

A good try Neil but it's not that bridge, this one is in N Wales somewhere?
