We saw it from a distance when we had a walk in Llanystumdwy but there were notices saying that it was private land so we didn't attempt to get there.  I'm sorry now because it would have been good to take photos   of it as it looks very impressive

Claire's possibly closing, ...........not Clare's of Mostyn St.

Claire's fear that the UK chain of fashion accessories shops could disappear from high streets, mounted earlier this year after its US parent, Claire's Stores Inc, filed for bankruptcy.

I was in the Victoria Centre yesterday, and Store 21 has emptied, closed down again ?, now the threat of Claire's, the centre was looking quiet, but so was the town. the old Mothercare however will be opening soon as a toy store.

Bearing in mind the above...........

The shocking shopper figures that should be a 'wake-up call' in Wales
The latest footfall statistics make grim reading for the Welsh retail sector.

"These figures ought to serve as a wake-up call to policy makers, beginning with a far greater focus being brought to bear on reducing the costs of doing business."    You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

I think Victory Yard may be Victoria Yard.

This was off Back Madoc Street.  There were five of these yards which contained workshops and small dwellings.  The area has been re-developed a couple of times since the 1930s and now forms the Victoria Shopping Centre.

Thank you, a very lucky find, I had glanced at the headline this morning, and did not take much notice, it was only by chance looking through the Daily Post site later, I spotted the picture,............ it would be expensive but a great project.

It's not Bodelwyddan Castle either and it's not a castle, although it is described as a castle styled mansion and it's not in Conwy County if that helps a bit

It's a weird stretch of road and I used to use it quite often when I was working.    At that point it is not wide enough for two vehicles to pass each other.
There is a right of way system in place and traffic coming from Llangefni going towards the A55 has the right of way and it seems that the lorry was coming from the town so any traffic coming from the A55 direction would have had to find an alternative way into the town
