    On the way back from Denbigh asylum, where I smashed my lens :banghead I stopped off at The Duke of Lancaster
    after tip toeing over the railway tracks and walking down a path way I spotted a security guard, I had no option but to have a chat with him
    and ask If I could come over the fence for 10 minutes, he said no and advised me that the place is patrolled 24/7 however a friend of mine went last month and no one was there so it might be the look of the draw. Had to make do with taking pics from the wrong side of the fence and the other side (see pics)

    History;

    On August 10th, 1979, a former Sealink passenger ferry called “The Duke of Lancaster" was beached at Llanerch-y-Mor in North Wales with the intention of turning it into a floating leisure and retail complex called The Fun Ship but the project never achieved it’s full potential due to many long running legal disputes with the local council.

    Make no bones about it, until it was converted into a car ferry she was one of the finest vessels afloat at the time. The first class quarters in the late fifties and early sixties were the best around, silver service restaurants, state rooms and luxurious cabins. In fact, the facilities and the accommodation on board Lancaster were so good she was frequently taken out of her usual ferry service and used as a cruise liner with frequent annual cruises around Scotland, Scandinavia and the Mediterranean.

    Ive passed this a lot and often thought of stopping off. Could you see if it looked open if you did get to the ship?
