Ten Roads Across Penmaenmawr Walk

Yesterday's 'Ten Roads Across Penmaenmawr' walk was a fascinating guide to our very own barrier to East-West travel, Penmaenmawr Mountain, and the many attempts to cross it. Thanks to Dennis for leading the walk, to all our volunteers for running it, and to everyone who came on the walk despite the Arctic conditions!!

Here are a few pictures from the day and a few old ones showing some of the roads across Penmaenmawr. Thanks to Sionyn and Merv for the photos.

Heritage Lottery Funding

2017 has been a year of exciting change at Penmaenmawr Museum, and we not only moved to the former post-office in the centre of town, but we also secured a small amount of stage-one Heritage Lottery funding to develop our plans for the Museum’s future. We’ve been very busy putting together the information for our stage two Lottery bid. If we’re successful, it will mean we can:

• Refurbish the museum with professional displays to showcase our collection about the history of Penmaenmawr
• Open more often and for longer hours
• Offer visitors to Penmaenmawr Welsh language taster sessions and information about places to go and things to see around Penmaenmawr
• Publish a programme of history lectures and book launch events
• Extend our successful history walks programme for residents and visitors

Thank you to all those who have supported us through volunteering, completing questionnaires and being involved in the consultations, sharing your stories, and visiting us at the Museum.

Fingers crossed for our Heritage Lottery bid in 2018 and we’ll keep you posted about the outcome.


Poppies on Doors 2017

Look for poppies on doors (or on street signs or gates or windows) in Penmaenmawr and Dwygyfylchi to discover the homes of servicemen who died in the First World War. The poppies are on show from November 5th. Beneath each poppy is a card with brief details of the person who died.

Thanks to the volunteers of Penmaenmawr Historical Society for arranging and co-ordinating the 'Poppies on Doors' tribute.
