    The 240ft skytower ride closed in 2011, it has been a landmark on the promenade since 1993 when it was acquired from Glasgow Garden Festival for around £825,000.

    Rides to the top in the rotating gondola cost £2, with a taped message giving information on the views of the bay, wind farms and Snowdonia. In September 2012 a report to denbighshire council councillors said the authority faced a £30,000 bill to remove the gondola ride and cable attached to the structure to make that safe.

    When it closed officers said that the weather had taken its toll on the structure.

    I'm not into high stuff so heres the pics from below!

    For all you high stuff nutters there is access to a ladder inside the tower that goes all the way to the top.

    OOooo that's tempting. Might take you up on that offer of a ladder climb... does the ladder take you outside at the top?
