More about this scene

This seaside resort and residential haven developed from the 1860s. Despite being continuous with Colwyn Bay, it preserves its own peaceful character. Its real name is Llandrillo-yn-Rhos, and the minute 6th-century St Trillo's chapel, built over a holy well, still stands on the promenade. On the right can be seen the landward section of the Victorian pier, which was demolished in 1954. The pier was acquired from Douglas in the Isle of Man in 1895, and was erected here in a bid to attract more tourists. Its place is now taken by a breakwater.
