What about the scaffolding around Wetherspoons? I was fascinated watching the guys erecting it, it really is a feat of engineering but I've yet to see anyone working on it! Does anyone know what's happening?

Funny you mention that, I've been thinking exactly the same thing. :D Scaffolding's been up for a couple of months now yet no cleaning or painting of the building appears to have been carried out.

I can probably change Wrex back to Rex if he wants, with a bit of fiddling.  D)

Who owns all the land at the Builders Street side of the railway station? It's huge and totally wasted is that where the new "transport hub" is to be?

It's all owned by a company called 'Northern Markets', run by Michael Don from Manchester. He's not done a lot with the site (ok, anything), so I can only assume it was bought as an investment and he's waiting for a juicy offer from a retail developer or similar.

Walked past the Tudno Castle Hotel earlier, the state of the building is declining quickly now. Broken windows, render falling off, fly posters, boarded up doorways - it all looks awful. If only planning permission had been granted for that Travelodge!

Can you please add the Penmorfa bomb site to the list.    I was looking at it today and it's a mess and as I was driving down the Marine Drive today an open top double decker tourist bus was travelling behind my car.
I can just imagine the driver on the tour bus saying as he passes the site  "on your left was the home of Alice in Wonderland and now on your right is the White Rabbit statue"
They are both a disgrace and I wouldn't like to be living in the nice apartments nearby,especially if you are thinking of selling.   :(

I think that, in years to come, the demolition of Penmorfa will be come to be seen as a massive blunder. There was no need for it to be demolished, apart from the fact that the site owners left it exposed to the weather to deteriorate for a year or two.
