Re: Llandudno Pier.....................Ferris wheel will be taken down

THE Llandudno Ferris wheel will be taken down today (November 3) as the landmark bids farewell to the town until 2024.

It had been due to stay for the upcoming weekend before making its annual trip to Sheffield for Christmas.

But this has been brought forward due to weather forecasts amid the looming threat of Storm Ciar?n.

A Llandudno Pier/Tir Prince spokesperson said: "It?s with a heavy heart that we have to announce that the Pier Wheel will be coming down tomorrow, slightly ahead of schedule.

"We were hoping for it to be operational this weekend, however due to the forecasted weather and other commitments we have had to make the decision to commence pull down tomorrow evening.

"We will be welcoming it back early next year after it?s annual trip to Sheffield.                  ref pioneer

High risk but essential! Maintenance work at Llandudno Pier underway

Between now and Easter, essential work is being carried out on the substructure of Llandudno Pier. The work is described as strenuous and time consuming; it is very much open to the elements with the pier stretching 2,295 feet (700m) over the sea.

THE FAMOUS Llandudno Pier is undergoing essential maintenance work to ensure it operates for several more decades.

Owned and operated by Tir Prince Leisure Group, the Grade II listed Victorian pier is the longest in Wales (at around 700 metres) and was first opened in 1877.

Now, the iron and steel beams and cross members that support several sections of the top of the pier are being replaced and repaired, in what the group called a ?thankless and tiring? task.

The work is done alongside routine maintenance work throughout the year, particularly on benches, tables and decking.
