Sandy beach-making pipes

This photo by Sion Jones, taken in 2014, shows the pipes that sucked up sand out at sea which was poured out on the beach in Colwyn Bay to create a new sandy beach. The old one was sucked away by the tides during the stormy winter of 2013/14. The pipes were pieced together before being towed out to sea on the beach at Pensarn.

A watery grave

This is how we know the coast at Pensarn used to be a few miles further north. Here’s a grave in St Michael’s graveyard, photographed by Sion Jones. It’s for a man”who had his dwelling three miles to the north”

Cofeb i’r gŵr a dywedir, oedd yn byw tair milltir i’r gogledd
sydd yng nghanol y môr!
