20 photos of trip from Abergele to Rhyl via Pensarn, Belgrano, Towyn and Kinmel Bay

P1020862
Taken from the top deck of the ‘Cymru Coastliner’ double decker in August 2016. This trip replicates a trip I remember taking in 1973. That summer was the busiest I can remember along the Towyn stretch. There was a craze for wearing Kiss Me Quick Skweeze Me Slow hats. The place was packed. Not so busy today but a holiday in Towyn is still the highlight of many a family’s year and the memories of childhood holidays along the north Wales coast have prompted people to retun here time and time again.

Bryn Tirion through cast iron railings at Mynydd Seion

Easly overlooked, these railings are outside Capel Mynydd Seion, Chapel Street, at the side of the road which led up to the old town police cells. Through the gap is Bryn Tirion terrace of stone cottages looking down on Llanfair Road. Another of Abergele’s hidden treasures.
