A stamp for Llandudno

Promenade-Llandudno

One of the stamp plaques that have been installed on postboxes throughout the UK.

Each plaque features one of the most popular stamps that has a connection with the particular city, town or village in which it can be found. This stamp is of Llandudno Pier and can be found near the entrance to the pier on the promenade.

Here’s a closer look… the photo was taken directly outside of our shop, the roof canopy can be seen on the left.

Taken yesterday, the pier offered a nice cooling breeze to escape from the heat of a hot summer afternoon.

Tabernacl

Tabernacl-Llandudno

A sunny view of the Tabenacl, which stands on the corner of Llewellyn Avenue and Upper Mostyn Street.

The Tabernacl is currently used for arts projects, including Lost Spaces by Culture Action Llandudno. On their website you can find people’s memories of the Tabernacl from when it was in use as a chapel:

“My name is Delyth, I remember the annual Sunday school trip to Llandudno by steam train from Blaenau Ffestiniog during the. Late 1940/50ies. We would go to the Capel Tabernacle for lunch. The ladies of the chapel would have made us a lovely lunch with ‘puddings’ which was a great treat for us. We were from Tabernacle Chapel in Blaenau Ffestiniog and for weeks before the Sunday School trip we made sure we went to Sunday School otherwise we wouldn’t be allowed to go on the trip. The times we would count our pennies saved, even on the train. Going through the long tunnel we would be looking through the train windows trying to see the tramps that our mothers told us were there banging their food tins. Hope it helps you” Delyth Shotter

Artwork on Anglesey

Penmon-Point-lighthouse

Here is one of four paintings by the artist Anthony Garratt. His ‘Four on Anglesey’ series consists of four open-air canvas pictures of the island that have been installed for the summer.

This particular work can be found at Penmon Point (Black Point), and like the other three is bolted to a rusting steel easel.
