The A470 between Back Cat and Llanrwst is far from suitable for commercial vehicles. Some of the bend radii as you leave Glan Conwy, combined with the narrowness of the road, make it potentially lethal.  And 12 years ago the WA stated improving the road at the dog-leg stretch - mid-way between Bodnant and Maenan - was a priority. So much for progress.

There is a large pothole on the lower ramp entrance to a council run car park, 16th October

There is a large deep pothole on the lower right part of the car park entrance. On trying to avaoid this I clipped my car's alloy wheel and ripped the tyre trying to avoid it. The cost of which I will have to bear. It needs fixing or on our next trip to Llandudno I will park on double yellow lines under the rules of blue badge parking to avoid any wheel damage and cause maximum inconvenience to others. As you can guess I am very annoyed.

We were driving on the A470 to Betws Y Coed today just after midday and between Betws and Llanrwst we saw the results of a bad two car crash.  There were two Police vehicles in attendance but we didn't see an ambulance on the scene.
Bad driving obviously played a part in the crash but speeding certainly had a major part in it too judging by the skid marks across the road that must have been more than 50 yards long.
I hope that no one was seriously injured as a result of the crash

DVT,
I was just  been thinking Evens!!  could this be the start of the name                 
William Henry Evans, Gwyrfai,
I all most sure 99%9 Gwyrfai was the farm my Dad took me to as a child (Dad cousin)
maybe over thinking again
1911 at Ffrith y Wae, Glan Conway
The home of James and Anne Evans
Gertrude age 14 (1897) their niece born Trefriw, occupation shown as "helping"
Anne is shown with an "e" and born 1863 but could perhaps be the Ann Davies at Mardir Farm age 10 in 1871 then Owen would be her brother, and so Gertrude would be a niece.

I was shocked and sorry to hear the tragic news of Andy's death.    I only knew him because I take my car to Halford's Autocentre and he seemed such a nice guy and was always very pleasant and helpful when I was there


Wife's horror as she watched husband swept out to sea by killer waves on dream holiday -

I think you're right about subdividing the larger shop spaces, Steve. In a sense, we're moving back towards how high streets used to look.
