Last Wednesday I posted the photograph above (TOP) and asked where in Rhyl you would find the seat. The answer is Vale Road in garden dedicated to the late Councillor Cyril Roberts, opposite Ty’n Rhyl.

First correct answer came from Lynn Roberts of Gordon Avenue. Gareth Roberts (no relation) was another who came up with the right answer and thinks he recalls that there were cottages on the Vale Road site before the gardens. You may well be right, Gareth – thanks for getting in touch.


WED 15th JUL 2009 UPDATE: A message has arrived from George Owen who says, “The seat on Vale Road was the site of two very old one-storey cottages, and on the wall behind the seat you can still see the V-shaped mark of the pitched roof where it was butted against the old chapel. I remember a friend who lived there, Nigel Millington. He now lives in Canada.”
