      Hi Val,
      There’s some related information on the page titled ‘The Old Pubs, Inns and Taverns of Abergele in the 1800’s’, which might assist you. Click on the link in the Recent Comments section to the right to get to it. The Lych Gate dates to 1887, built to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Jubilee; the church porch was also built at this time.
      A 1970’s version of Peel Street still exists but not Jenkins Street. You can use the search box at the top right of this page to find articles covering the original 1800’s Peel St., including some photos kindly provided by Dennis Parr. Most modern on-line maps should locate Peel Street for you – head east from Church St. (Church Walks) along Market St. to Water St., which is the next major junction north towards Pensarn. Peel Street is the first major street on your right off Water Street.
      Head back to the Market St. junction with Water St., but, this time, carry on eastwards along Bridge Street. Approx. 300 metres past St. George’s Road (on your right) is a large paint retailers. Jenkins Street used to run south off Bridge St., more or less paralleling St. George’s Road, at this point.
      There’s a wealth of local historical information on the Abergele Post site, from a variety of contributors, so hopefully we can provide answers to most of your queries. Regarding the Facebook part, we do have a link elsewhere on this page though, perhaps not quite in the same format as these pages.
      Regards, Nigel.
