I've never been there before so Tellytubby took me for a walk around the reserve.    There's many varieties of Birds in the reserve and lots of Ducks on the cut itself.
Tellytubby is very positive and recovering well from his stroke and all being well we shall have a long awaited walk together at the end of January

I thought it was that straight away but when I looked at it again that looks like a fireplace so I thought that a fire and gunpowder don't go together!
So I had a wild guess instead

The first week in October every year is when the Seals go to North Stack to have their pups and you can hear the racket going on before you get near that point.   For many years we used to go there and go on the cliff top by the light house to watch the event

Most people of a certain age will at some time have gone past the well.      Time however has bypassed this place?

No guesses?

Perhaps the drinkers amongst us took more notice of the building adjacent to the well when driving past?

So where is the well?

Struggling with this one, but this guess is based on your pub clue and your recent walk..........Tafarn Y Plu / Lloyd Georges burial site

A good try Steve but my recent walk has thrown you.

I know it's only easy if you know it but I'm guessing that you've driven past it many many times.   

It's much further east and it's actually on the St Asaph Road  where it's quite visible, but where exactly is it ?

The large building adjacent to the well was not a public house but did supply beer to the pubs.

If anyone drove from Llandudno to Chester via Holywell before 1986 then they would have driven past the well.     It's also visible on Google street view so where is it exactly?
