    THIS PLACE IS MID DEMOLITION (Late July '11)
    If you want to see it, be quick. See pics 3 & 4​

    After our mixed results at Llanberis Bomb Store and conscious of the fact sim2lew had to be back very soon, we decided to head back, but not before trying one more site. On the way up to Llanberis we'd spotted the two jetty's that stand out in the Irish Sea, the eastern one looked so forlorn we decided to pay it a visit, you know, see if we could cheer it up :D

    I'll let ex0 take up the story from here:
    Despite assertions to the contrary, these pine cone related dangers came in the form of Mr. ex0 sitting on the opposite side of a fence, lobbing said pinecones at us in full view of local residents who where headed home. Said residents initially drove past, then stopped and reversed to do a double take. At this point we decided to get back in the car and GTFO!

    Fast forward two weeks later, ex0 and I are making plans to return. An hour and a half on the train isn't too bad, except we're only travelling about 60 miles! After arriving in Colwyn and trolling off the train we went through Colwyn in search of food. Looking at Google Maps, the nearest McDonalds is about an hour and a half walk (and this is a civilised country?!). Fuck that! We went into Bay View Shopping centre on the hunt and found Morrisons, not exactly win but close enough. After I stocked up on pasties and ex0 stocked up on sweet pastries and muffins :gay we headed off to get the bus. This time we avoided pinecone related dangers and headed straight to silo building along the cycle path. That's where the pictures come in...

    There are still some nice little features located round and about

    With a tight squeeze we managed to access the upper level of the silo building

    At this point we managed actually get up on the roof of the silo building, there's nothing much on the roof itself...

    I normally wouldn't give such a site a large report, but as it's being demo'd I think it deserves to be remembered.
    All the rest of my photos are available on my site, HERE
    Thank for looking and I hope you've enjoyed what you've seen!
