Concerns raised about impact Pier Pavilion development may have on Llandudno mine.

Concerns have been raised about how controversial construction plans on a site in Llandudno will impact on a historically important mine site.
The Ty Gwyn Mine coffin levels run directly underneath North Road behind the Llandudno Pier, right up to the boarder of the proposed Pier Pavilion site.

Debbie Wareham, part of the Maritime Heritage Social Enterprise and Charity, has raised concerns the Pier Pavilion development planned could impact on the Ty Gwyn Mine, a site she said had national and local importance.      Ref Pioneer

William Henry Evans is too recent to trace through findmypast, but you have links to Hughes family at Trefriw, who are linked to the Evans family at Ffrith-y-Foel, so it looks as though things are coming together that way.  It is possible that William Henry Evans is a decscendant of James and Anne Evans.

Local News & Discussion / Re: The long running saga of Colwyn Bay Pier
« Last post by Neil on Today at 12:52:02 PM »
Have any of the Pier enthusiasts had a look at the Bay without the Pier? In my opinion the Bay looks far better without a Pier, if you look at pictures of the various Piers that have been on this site they all look like eyesores to me. Piers were essential in holiday resorts for a long time, but Colwyn Bay Has not been a holiday resort for years, it has two hotels and a B&B. The best place for a pier like structure would be the Rhos on Sea end of the Bay if you must have one.

Since Kingdom went, I thought I was being a bit paranoid, did I see more dog muck around ?, there was definitely more dogs off their leads, I live in a quiet road and noticed dogs being leashed as they got nearer to the main road, a very dangerous habit.

Initially We agreed something needed done, but disagreed with Kingdoms methods, but maybe we needed the heavy handed approach and the publicity for it to be effective ?

Colwyn Bay resident says he would "welcome back Kingdom with open arms" after dog fouling gets out of hand
A Colwyn Bay residents has said he would "welcome back Kingdom with open arms" after dog fouling has begun to get out of hand in his neighbourhood.

Brackley Avenue resident Mike Roberts said he has found bags of dog muck all over the place in his street from on top of his hedge and hanging from trees to neighbours gardens.
He said: "I would welcome Kingdom back with open arms. Bring Kingdom here.

"We have dog muck in people's gardens, hanging from trees, no fewer than six bags lumped on the pavement and even dog muck not in bags on my drive.
"People are placing them all over the shop and my neighbours have brought it to the council's attention

Last night I spent time shredding a load of old bank statements and suchlike ... the shredded pieces are now in a bin, but can easily be emptied out to be a pile of shredded paper on the floor..

Anyone any idea how much that would be worth?

Follow up on the Banksy story.......Only the art world could come up with this..............

"A Sotheby's spokesman said: "The new narrative is that Banksy did not destroy a work on its premises, he created one, adding value not detracting."

"Judging by the title that Banksy has given the work, the intention was for the artwork to be a shredded canvas on the floor, beneath an empty frame.
So you could argue that the installation piece of an empty frame on a wall, with the shredded canvas beneath it, would actually be worth more, than what could be considered an 'incomplete' artwork, stuck in the frame."

The partial shredding of a Banksy artwork didn't go entirely to plan, the artist has confirmed.
Love is in the Bin self-shredded in its frame immediately after selling for £860,000 at Sotheby's last week.
Now, Banksy has uploaded a video suggesting the entire canvas was supposed to shred, and not just two thirds of it.
A clip of a canvas shredding in full is seen in the video with the caption: "In rehearsals, it worked every time."

Looking closer at the 1911 census details for James Evans ... the census forms you can view online are copies of the originals, hand-written by the residents.  Although the transcript gives the property as Ffrith y Vae I am confident the writing actually says Ffrith y Voel (spelt with a V and not F).  The census also states that the marriage of James and Anne has been for 24 years and they had 4 children, three still living but not at that address.

Strangely I cannot trace James or Anne Evans on earlier censuses.

Who is William Henry Evans, cannot trace him.
