A wind turbine is a windmill-like structure specifically developed to generate electricity. They can be seen as the next step in the development of the windmill.
haha your opinion, not the majority ;)
The things in the sea are wind turbines. Full stop.


Actually, it's a quote from Wikipedia and Britannica says the same thing, so it's not just my opinion. The "things" in the sea are windmills; they can also be called turbines, as a turbine and a windmill are both "machines for producing continuous power in which a wheel or rotor, typically fitted with vanes, is made to revolve by a fast-moving flow of water, steam, gas, air, or other fluid." . Windmill is a generic term, as is Turbine, but most turbines are associated with jet engines.

Interestingly, the prime function of the Dutch Windmills was to provide power to drain the land. This these latest windmills are simply a different design. They may not be as picturesque of course, but they're still essentially windmills.

I don't agree about the wind farm, Fester; for a start it's quite a way off the foreshore, is isolated and not affecting anything else, and is a feature of interest, if not somewhat elegant in its own right.  I like windmills.

Times Past / Re: Llandudno Pubs Gone But Not Forgotten

Before my time, Mike, but it was on Mostyn Street.  I recall being told it was in the vicinity of where Sumners/Arnold's was, could be wrong though.  It was established in the 1860s but presumably had gone by the Great War.

There was a Pulling family who lived three or four doors down from us in Kings Road in the 1940s. The one I knew was a couple of years older than me and a tough little fighter. I knew him as 'Habsie.' *punch*

Just in case anyone is interested and hasn't seen Robson Green's visit to Anglesey,   I've enclosed a link and it shows the two properties we saw on Saturday.    The one in Moelfre can be seen after 13 minutes if you want to skip the rest

You see, I think that the Venue Cymru is arguably more at the ‘epicentre’ of the town, than the Pier Pavilion.


Er, Venue Crymru the epicentre of the town? The equivalent of the 'town square' possibly the most prominent site in Llandudno where every visitor and holidaymaker stroll at some stage of their visit and is featured on every instantly recognisable photograph of Llandudno....?

Hmm, let me think about that.......

Bosun, it’s debatable as I said, but it’s interesting to note that our beloved visitors are all dropped off at the coach park near VC, and expected to make their way to your ‘epicentre’... but that’s another issue.

BTR,  I don’t think you can be dealt a ‘death knell’,  it’s the tolling of a funereal bell. 
Don’t you know anything man?   :laugh:

I was thinking of dealt a death blow. But thanks for the info  :P

BTW I dare say a death knell would sound a lot more pleasant than your Motorhead noise  8)

I agree with Bosun, Venue is not the epicentre and if people are dropped of at the coach park because there is nowhere else for coaches to park!  Our guests come by private car or train as do thousands more.  Our guests represent the overall demographic of our population (which is aging so there are more older people around everywhere these days). we get lots of younger people (20s and 30s) and lots of tourists from abroad who love the place for its old fashioned charm.  Adam Williams wanted to buy the land but Waldron 'piped him to the post' he wants to develop  it and reincorporate it back into the pier.  His plans sound preferable to Waldron's, much more in line with what the majority of people are saying they want to see there.
