Times Past / Re: Invalids Walk - any idea when it was made?
« Last post by Nemesis on Today at 06:27:56 PM »
Going back a long number of years I approached Mostyn Estates with regard to my research on the history of our house. The lady was very helpful and provided me with copies of lease assignations and letters pre 1900, but according to what I was told their archive dept had a fire and anything pre then was destroyed. Thus I never got further back and found out exactly when it was built.

 Dozens of people turned out to pay their respects to a former RAF officer and ‘true gentleman’ who died leaving few relatives behind to attend his funeral.

Herbert James Haines, who died aged 97, had survived prisoner of war camps in the far east, including time in Hiroshima before and after it was bombed by US forces at the end of the conflict.


His death in Rhos-on-Sea prompted an appeal by The British Legion and RAF chiefs, who wanted to make sure his funeral was well-attended by people willing to show gratitude for the sacrifices he made during his remarkable military career.

Today around 100 people joined his wife of 60 years, Vera, and nephew Mark Delamere from Devon, at a service in Colwyn Bay .

Hi TL,     I'm sorry but I can't help you on this one as I didn't keep a record of the map I was looking at.     I did e-mail Mostyn Estates asking for info on Cust's Path but they didn't even have the courtesy to reply to my request, no surprises there though.

There was an exhibition in Llandudno in 2011 by Llandudno and Colwyn Bay History Society and they had rare photos of Cust's Path so they may be able to  help or you could try Mostyn Estates as they would have had the plans and perhaps you may have more luck with them than I did, good luck

Hi Hugo

On a holiday in Llandudno I managed to get to the Archive Service - very nice and helpful people. BUT - despite looking over and over on the database, they could not locate a map of Custs Path.

Mea culpa - any ideas what it might be called - the record, i mean, not the Path!!

Many thanks
