Do you hit them over the head with the bottle?

Indeed Nooks, a dreadful dreadful occurrence and everyone affected has my deepest sympathy.

  Holyhead has a lot of ties with both Manchester and Liverpool, family, sporting, and "bright lights" entertainment to mention a few.  Words fail me.

I cannot comprehend the mindset behind the horror that has been perpetrated.

I found a dead mouse in the bottom of the watering can in the garage this morning ... I felt very sorry for it, but I also felt quite sorry for me, having to deal with it.

Anyway, this is the latest mouse repellent idea ...

Serious Stuff Only / Manchester Bombing

I just want to say how sad I was to hear the terrible news from Manchester this morning, and how my thoughts are with all that have been affected.

Manchester isn't particularly near Caergybi, it's not even in the same country for that matter. It is however "just down the road" and many of our members may have visited at some time. They may have even travelled to a concert there, and that brings home the detail of how easily somebody we know may be affected by such an atrocity.

I do hope that nobody we know has suffered directly or indirectly by this event, but if so, I am sure that our entire membership will join me with their thoughts and best wishes to look ahead from this disgusting occurance.

This thread is ace.

You're missing "a disgr" just before the "ace."

I don't think that's a beach, as much as a collection of muddy stones and seaweed that just happens to be next to some water.

I guess for you, life's a beach !



Lovely picture Baz!

She is the the "Thora" a small vessel that used to run coal from the port around to Bedmannarch Bay up that part of the cob that widens out into a grassy square.  You know, where the fishermen park.

She would unload there and the coal would go via horse and cart out to Valley and surrounding countryside.

I can't recall the date 1935 - 1950's? but one fateful day the "Thora" made her last trip around Bedmannarch Bay and was scuttled on the beach by the site of the original Valley Foundry, I guess the blacksmith played a major part in the operation; as he would have had the tools and strength.

She was fully surveyed about 5 years ago by a team of scientists and there is a site somewhere that has all these details, and much more but usefully I've lost the url

Hey thanks TG  for the very interesting info. Holyhead is my home town but embarrassingly I could'nt remember anything about the wreck.


If you look over the wall from the cob you can see the remains of a load of guttering that somebody dumped whilst parked on that part of the cob.  The plastic shards of guttering are to be seen stuck upright in the sand all along the channels which are the deepest part of this portion of the bay.  A truly moronic place to fly tip your building rubble and debris. >:(

Yes maybe it was a company that did it due to the cost of getting rid of commercial waste. Sadly these morons are rarely caught.

Penrhos?

Close enough my friend, it's the Valley side - just across the water from Penrhos Nature Reserve/ Coastal Park.

Here is a photo from the same beach looking towards Holyhead. There is an old wreck in the photo too.
