Robert Jones Bee Hotel Coachman

This is the first of a series of images of Abergele from Dennis Parr’s collection. Mr Parr will be familiar to many who’ve lived in the town since the 1960s. He used to run Parr’s shops in Market St.
This image, from his collection and reproduced with Dennis Parr’s permission, shows Mr Robert Jones,  the coachman who was employed by the Bee Hotel long ago to meet guests at Pensarn raiway station and shuttle them to the Bee Hotel.
We’ll publish more images from the Dennis Parr Collection on this site over the coming months.

      Cottonia Cottage was / is a mid-terrace on Chapel Street a couple if doors up from the dentist. I think it’s the one with the shop front labelled PHW Commercial.
