Plas Mawr, Conwy

conwy plas mawr-1424

Plas Mawr Elizabethan Townhouse, Conwy, was built between 1576 and 1585 at the heart of the medieval town’s narrow cobbled streets. It is probably the best-preserved Elizabethan townhouse in Britain. The interior, with its elaborately decorated plaster ceilings and fine wooden screens, reflects the wealth and opulence of the Tudor gentry in Wales.

Funship No More

funship gate-9072

Originally the Heysham-Belfast Ferry, this massive ship was dumped at Mostyn in the 1980s with the intention it would become an entertainment centre/indoor market. Problems with the local Council meant this only lasted a very short time and it has been rusting away ever since. Several large Graffiti pieces have recently appeared on the ship, part of an officially sanctioned arts project.

Red Gables Hotel

The now derelict Red Gables Hotel in Penmaenmawr was the scene of North Wales’ worst ever mass murder on 25th July 1976, when the Hotel’s former Gardener, Neil Rutherford, killed 4 people at the Hotel before setting it alight and then shooting himself. This photo shows the former Reception area, which has been heavily vandalised since the Hotel closed in 2004.
