That is an excellent photograph.

Are those the ladies, gents and disabled toilets in the foreground that the Pier Company claim 500 from CCBC to allow the general public to use but are often closed this time of the year ?

Thanks, Bri.  :)

The Pierhead toilets are closed all Winter as the water supply to the end of the Pier is turned off and drained due to fears about pipes bursting. That also means they dont open the Cafe or Bar at all in the Winter.  :roll:

I notice the Golden Goose is now closed a few days a week so toilet facilities along the pier are currently a problem.

An update on the Landing Stage situation from someone 'in the know':

"After more than five seasons without the use of Llandudno pier after its closure following the 2006 season, and many fruitless attempts to draw strands together to create a network of funding agencies to meld Conwy CBC, Six Piers Ltd, the HLF, The Talacre Gas Field Levy Board, there may finally be a glimmer of hope at the end of the tunnel a 345,000 scheme has been drawn up to renovate the pier and more importantly the berthing head but as yet there is no money and no legal arrangement but its better then nothing."

I am told that Conwy CBC is at the point of issuing Invitations to Tender for the repairs needed to the pier sufficient to bring excursions ships back to Llandudno

Can anyone confirm???

Bah to that.  8)

I paid a flying visit to Beaumaris on Sunday and the pier there is having a lot of work done. Good to see major investment but I find the new additions to the Pierhead a bit ugly, to be honest.

You will be pleased to know that those massive piles, and the pontoon that had to be towed in from Liverpool are rated to vessels of a maximum GRT of





wait for it





how many tourists can be accommodated




on a ship that is less than




a whole thirty GRT!!!


Wasser point of that then?? Answers to the businesses of Beaumauris who have been so well served by Ynys Mon's forward thinking strategy when everyone else is trying to get coastal vessels like Balmoral - 600GRT - back into the area - with her capacity for 630 tourists!

But wasn't there a story in the Daily Post recently about Beaumaris Pier work and funding? Much more required than anticipated?

From what I can see, I think they've ruined it. The new pontoon and pier extension looks ugly.  $angry$

A couple of weeks ago, I submitted an enquiry through the Llandudno Pier website asking when the pier would be open again seven days a week because it has been closed on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Today, I received a reply:


Brian

The Pier is open 7 days per week all year long, with the exception of Christmas Day.

In the Winter Months we close when the weather conditions are bad.

The Shops and Facilities on the Pier should all re open for Easter 2012.

Thank you for your enquire.

It was only the arcade that closed on mon, tue, weds, the pier itself was open when weather was good and no maintenance work was taking place.
