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 believe it's from the big signpost just outside Salt Island, which says "Salt Island."

Does anyone know why salt island is called salt island, how did it get that name?

I would love to see inside the building, never been in me no.

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

I don't worry about my weight too much.... I'm about 14 and a half stone which I think is about right for my height and bodyframe although those daft BMI charts say I'm overweight.

The crisps I most often eat are Walkers prawn cocktail or cheese and onion - I also like Doritos - the spicy ones.

Yes TG I've passed through those doors !

Not to stand in the dock, but to do electrical maintenance.

Ah I remember the days when you'd see the tacla Caergybi standing outside waiting to be called in - some seemingly proud to be standing there and perhaps marvellng at how hard they are.  ;)

That's daft saying the lighthouse is built on a small island.  South STACK, its in the name.

Up for sale.  How many Holyhead characters have passed through those doors?  Have you?
 ;)
  I can recall going to a Christmas "drink" there years ago and being rather under the influence I went into #1 court and climbed up into the judges pulpit, sat in his chair and banged the gavel shouting for "Silence in Court!"

I wonder what will happen to all that wood panelling?
