“If you can find them…and no-one else can help….maybe you can hire – THE A-TEAM”
A fateful but most enjoyable trip to a tall point of North wales
Enjoy the view – i walked up a very tall hill to get to it 🙂
A bit like the fellow who walked up a hill and came down a mountain 🙂
The funny thing is Me, Bill, Nigel and Joe weren’t even supposed to be here – we headed off from our meeting point at Imperial War Museum North and somehow we missed our junction for the M6 and Buxton (our intended destination). So we Headed for the M56 North Wales road instead, with all the delights that the country parks of wales could offer.
(I’m smiling about it now…..)
Walking up the Great Orme, led us to the Summit Complex, with Educational facilities, Museum, Hotel and restaurant. Our reward for reaching the summit ? A really nice Lunch plate of Fish and Chips in the restaurant.
There was a plaque dedicated to the forces who served at Great Orme when the Cafe was a Royal Air Force Radar Station, defending the nation against Nazi air attack in World war II – All four of us volunteer at Imperial War Museum North in Manchester – so i guess it was fate that we’d eventually end up somewhere with a connection to the armed forces…
Inside the Visitor centre – there was a display of the Great Orme Landscape, its terrain – and the sea birds that reside there.
Being indoors in the restaurant – Our Lunches were safe from these regular visitors 🙂
