Tower Of Mystery


Tower Of Mystery, originally uploaded by davidrobertsphotography.

This odd looking structure is on the beach at West Shore, Llandudno. I believe one of the local residents built it in the 1970s as a look out point for their house (which was on top of the cliff) but dont have any details. It's now abandoned and semi-derelict. Couldnt find a way up to the top of the tower, although we did look!

The tower was beach access from the house above and contained a lift! The owner was Frank Tyldsley a local Master Builder. He built the tower so that his disabled and partially sighted wife could access the beach!
