I wonder if the path was originally used by the Y Fach quarry workers?  :Sisyphus:

That's a possibility, it's certainly well used. What amazes me is how open the entire area is, its heavily wooded today.

The Grand Theatre in Llandudno (now Broadway Boulevard nightclub) was never much of a financial success, probably due to its location:

In 1957, it was bought by John Creese-Parsons, who redecorated and refurbished it, then kept it open with a steady stream of Agatha Christie plays until 1980, when non-compliance with fire regulation caused it to close. It reopened in 1987 as the Grand Revivals nightclub, then became Broadway Boulevard in 1990.

Earlier this year, I took a behind the scenes tour of the Grand Theatre to view the parts of the building normally not accessible by the Public. The photos are all here:
