Progress made at 'eyesore' Llandudno Pier Pavilion site
Published on 01 September 2016 by Steve Craddock

site investigations have so far uncovered a large pool beneath the ground which may have been used for swimming or boating


The initial statement makes it sound as though he was surprised to find the swimming pool. Surely he knew the history of the site before he bought it? With the previous flooding issues I doubt I'd park my car on that level!

It's not actually a picture of the pool but of a press cutting about it.

From memory, the swimming pool was used by the dodgems which were part of the Tuson's arcade.  The walls of the dodgem area were white tiled just like a pool of that vintage, there may have been a disused pool or reservoir at a lower level which was something to do with the Baths Hotel. I am sure the developers would have been aware of the dodgem area so the comments may well relate to the lower level.

As an aside to the above article, the former Swimming Pool in the Pier Pavilion basement that has just been uncovered last saw the light of day in 1901:

A Design Concept for the Pier Pavilion redevelopment is available for inspection in Llandudno Library. I reserve my right to comment at this stage, as it is only a suggestion so far.
