There's a Wiki on Salt Island - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salt_Island,_Anglesey

repeating more or less what Nooks said earlier in the thread.

Remember when the lovely people would be smoking and swearing at the top of their voices, wearing dirty ill fitting shell suits opposite Chadwicks

Are you sure they weren't plain clothes police?

Whoever buys it will also have a private underground tunnel to the police station. 

Handy.
They used to play snooker upstairs in the Heddlu

Happy days.

One of the coppers bought that snooker table. Apparently he had a terrible job carrying the slate bed out.

Accordng to Cambria49's Book "Holyhead to Ireland", Salt Island took its name from the salt works constructed on it, presumably around the late 17th Century. Apparantly Lewis Morris's map of 1746 shows the salt works in ruins.

I have that map!

Blade runner 2049

Don't read this if you haven't watched it and you are going to

Visually a good film
Acting good throughout
Certain aspects harking back to the original
Plot, not bad at all with a twist, open for a third film
Length, at 2.5 hrs, it seemed a bit long
Crap bits, the way it went back with clips and voice overs for the hard of thinking, dear me, its not that hard to follow
The last few minutes of the film, was it necessary to have a goody vs baddy fight scene, really!

Hand made hot water bottles no less. Now there's a thing.

Nice to see old traditions surviving in these days of innovation and  invention.
