Came across this earlier while out for an afternoon drive and picnic lunch - where was I ???

It is not in the immediate Three Towns area, but it is in Conwy County.

The inscription appears to be a date, nearly 30 years ago if it is, but I'm intrigued to know what it is about !

I'll post another pic tomorrow evening, if no-one has got it by then !

That's a really good find DVT and I haven't got a clue about either the location or the meaning of the stone.

A very wild guess that the location is a reservoir and I first thought of Llyn Celyn but discounted that as it's in Gwynedd but my second guess is the Alwen Reservoir but I have no idea about that stone so I'm still thinking            ?{}?

Not Llyn Alwen but you're not very far away !!!

You're in the right corner of Conwy County !!!

Aled Isaf has a lot of coarse fishing going on, and the painted rock looks like a fisherman in his sou'wester, and his rowing boat, so that is my guess, perhaps  the date of a record fish. ?

Good detective work there Steve.         $good$

I still hadn't got a clue until your posting.    I have seen some photos of massive fish caught in the Brenig but didn't associate the place with DVT's photo
The Brenig in 1990 it was selected as the only Welsh reservoir used for the World Fly Fishing Championships.

Yes, quite correct - Aled Isaf Reservoir !!!

... the water level was very low yesterday and the rock had become exposed.  I'd never seen it before and have driven that road quite a few times in the past.  I have also rallied along it in the middle of the night, nearly went into the lake many years ago when travelling northwards - the bend that caught us out now has a chevron on it - I was navigating so can blame the driver for not taking the bend I'd called!  Took us 20 minutes to regain the road but we ended up winning the event, but that's another story!

... I thought I would be able to overcome anyone using Google as it doesn't show (see pic), but Super Sleuth SteveH wins again!  I like the explanation as well - I thought the pic was of a ghost, now it has been said then I can see a fisherman in so'wester.  What we want to know now is how big was the fish!!!

Hugo, I have cheated a bit, and will not give what I think is the answer, but the owner, Mr Roberts breeds Charrollais sheep ?

Steve, you've found out more than I have as I haven't been able to trace Mr Roberts.

I thought that I had only left two clues:      Smith   and   01248

So where is this bargain buy?       $walesflag$

I could be way off the mark, but going on one of your clues, I came up with LLANGAFFO YNYS MON ANGLESEY LL60  any good ?

You're spot on Steve,  it's way off the mark.     You had me sweating for a while as I thought that it might have been too easy

It's not in Anglesey and the 01248 Tel No could be misleading so where is this bargain buy situated?         $walesflag$

It's in a very nice and convenient location with a main line train station and a very busy main road within 200 yards
