Penmaenmawr in Bloom a community group of volunteers can take the credit for the beautiful flowers Hollins. They have their own Facebook page if anyone wants to have a look at their displays, they even grow the flowers themselves.  &well&

Here's a bigger photo of the place which should give a clue as to what type of building this is.

I thought that it was some type of prison when I saw the first photo but now I'm stumped,   it's certainly a substantial structure but I'm clueless  as to what it could be.
It's like a buttress, possible bridge or even a reservoir but I'm still     ?{}?

You are certainly right with substantial structure Hugo and it was built to improve the lives of the people in Birmingham.

Is it the Elan Valley Reservoir then?

It is the Elan valley where there are several reservoirs and dams. This is the Pen Y Garreg dam.
We walked around the Garreg-Ddu Reservoir. I'll post some pics of the walk in another thread.

A few bridges crossed the Afon and although this was a place for the Summer it certainly wasn't Summer weather yesterday and we all got soaked but at least the waterfalls were impressive                         $wales

Thanks Spotty Dog, even though we were soaked to the skin and had to abandon the walk at least we were out and about and it was far better than listening to all this political hypothetical guff all the time
Now some more photos so where were we yesterday?

It was so wet when we finished our walk that we had to take refuge in this Church.    Well we had to have our refreshments somewhere!
We sat in the porch there and enjoyed the food, far better than eating soggy sandwiches
