Another Billy-no-mates explore.

During the Second World War, Llandudno played host to the Royal Artillery School which was transfered from its original home in Shoeburyness to the Great Orme's head.

The school became fully operational in the 24th September 1940.

Training at the school reached it peak in 1942, when 150 officers, 115 cadets, and 445 other ranks were accommodated and upto 14 courses could be run at any one time.

At the end of the war the armament and equipment were removed and in 1946 the land was returned to the Mostyn family. The buildings became derelict and most of them were demolished in the mid 1950's.
