Just how thick and stupid some people can be.     This woman is on record and has broken lockdown rules and even carried out racists remarks against the Welsh but will the Police prosecute her for those remarks,  probably not?

It has been a "tow away zone" for a while Nemesis but you'll find that more people park their cars at the top of the embankment.
If you're lucky you can get a parking spot between the traffic lights and the slipway by the embankment.
I'm told that the cafe by the Cayley is open for takeaways and they serve a nice coffee and tasty bacon bap

As for the tourists, there are too many cars on the road now for the Police to effectively stop and check each car and with mixed messages coming from England with Boris and Cummings etc it will probably get worse

I think that I have seen and heard everything now. The whole of the promenade below the Cayley embankment and beyond is now a 'Tow away zone'...ie no parking at all. On questioning a few people we were told that it was to prevent 'trippers' stopping in the area. Nothing in Llandudno, so naturally everyone will carry on to the prom there. Surely any 'trippers will have been stopped before they get to Rhos????? CBC strikes again !

Hugo, I agree- it is a great pity that the old chapel has fallen into such disrepair.  As far as I know it is a scheduled ancient monument so you would have thought that Cadw might take an interest.  Unfortunately they seem reluctant to become positively involved in monuments that are privately owned.

I think there have been four small books relating to the Old Hall and the chapel. The last one, undated, but probably from the early 1990s contains the final sentence: "The proceeds of this booklet will go towards the restoration of the chapel which is situated in the grounds of Penrhyn Old Hall". The accuracy of this booklet is undermined by the following howler:

"In 1760 Penrhyn Hall became the home of Dr John Williams, Archbishop of York and Lord Keeper of the Great Seal to King James l"

In reality, Archbishop John Williams, a notable native of Conwy, died at Gloddaeth in 1650.  He had no connection with Penrhyn Old Hall but owned the original manor house on the site of what is now Penrhyn Castle!

More Covidiots in the area, what don't they understand about the lockdown         It's a shame that the fines don't justify the time and effort by the Police in tracking these people

Well done Cambrian       $good$

I haven't got a clue what the building is or what it was used for  in the past but I went to Batty's Nurseries and thought that it would be ok for the quiz

Further up the lane before you get to Penrhyn Old Hall is believed to be the original St Mary's Chapel built in 1447.   Sadly now though it is just a ruin but it was used by local people until 1930

Good clue Hugo.  I don't remember it being so pristine in my rare excursions to the 1590 - it may have still been in agricultural use then.

It is on the road to the holiday park/Penrhyn Old Hall.

Another good guess Spotty Dog but it's not correct.

I wonder how many forum members in their younger days have staggered past this building and not noticed it!            $drink$
