coal yardThe 1987 photograph at the top shows the southwest corner of Vale Road Bridge when the old coal yard was being redeveloped by Co-operative Group Ltd as one of their stores named Leo’s, later renamed Pioneer, with an enormous car park in front.

In November 2000, Morrisons took over the site as their first supermarket in Wales, and the photo of it was taken a few months ago round the corner in Marsh Road by Yours Truly. Morrisons have been in Rhyl for nine years. Time flies!
