The photo above was taken through my bedroom window in Plas y Brenin off Kings Avenue, Rhyl. Often I have wondered what the old brown-walled building is and why it is still there.

It is located at the rear of 103 Wellington Road (opposite the studios of Point FM). The owners of the property are Pennaf/Clwyd Alyn. I asked one of their housing officers about the building and all he said was, “Nobody lives in there.”

Yes, well perhaps it’s a punishment cell for bad tenants. I can hear an occasional scream in the night. 


WED 11th MAY 2016 UPDATE: Whatever the building is, it's getting a new roof - and not a moment before time!

SUN 15th MAY 2016 UPDATE: A neighbour says that it is an ex-workshop being converted into a store room for the Wellington Road business Davy Jones Locker.
