Abergele and Pensarn Railway Station





Wikipedia says: “Opened as Abergele by the Chester and Holyhead Railway on 1 May 1848,[1] it became part of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway during the Grouping of 1923. The line then passed on to the London Midland Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948.

The station in 1962

When Sectorisation was introduced, the station was served by Regional Railways although Intercity Sector trains passed through on their way from London Euston and the Midlands to Holyhead.

The Privatisation of British Railways led to services being provided by Arriva Trains Wales.”

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.
