As a wargamer the following things caught my eye.
|I love landscapes showing how it all used to look. This is Llandudno 13000 years ago|
|Llandudno 5000 years ago. Looking more familiar now.|
|I love this map of the area in the 13th century as I didn't realise how much the sea had risen. Most of the green in the centre of the map are now under water including a palace of a Welsh prince. I say palace think hall|
|Hill fort by the sea. I see a game in this|
|Ideas to recreate Deganwy castle|
|Revolting villagers beating up the landlady and agent.|
|Jump in time to the steamers that used to dock at the end of the pier. This gives me a Very British Civil War idea of a invaders or reinforcements landing at the end of the pier|
|Beach by pier|
There was no layout of the artillery school, but I know the area and they were on the Great Orme. The guns were on top off a cliff, behind them another sharp slope/cliff was the observation building and above on the top was a converted golf club with the radar station. Gives me ideas for Guns of Navarone style game with either Germans (naturally to neutralise them, so U-Boats can sink either the convoys that gathered off the coast or the mulberry harbours built at the mouth of the Conwy estuary) or a Very British Civil War theme
|Home Guard uniform. Llandudno was in the county of Caernarfon in WW2|
A good little museum, where I learnt things I didn't know which is the point really. I'm looking forward to seeing how they remodel it as the town and area has so much history.
