CPRA trip to Plas Cadnant

We arrived on Angelsey and were welcomed at the gate of Plas Cadnant by the owner Anthony Tavernor who gave us some fascinating background to the gardens and its restoration which had taken him about 20 years.

After refreshments we began our journey around the beautiful interesting and amazingly planted gardens. They blended into the background natural beauty of the    Estate Park with waterfalls and fabulous views. A truly magical place.

We then went to Beaumaris for marvellous views of the straits and Snowdonia and a little sightseeing. Unfortunately we missed the sun but had a good journey home along the coast. A lovely day.

CPRA in the Past

***********************************************************************

Ray Parry (R) with cousin (in cap) & friend, Earlsway, Curzon Park

This photograph was  taken outside 10 Earlsway in the 1920’s.  Ice cream was obviously as popular a treat then as now, but sold from a bicycle cart rather than from a chiming transit van. Two of the boys are wearing their school caps (which school?), and perhaps the old fashioned bicycle in the background may have belonged to one of them.

Curzon Park, then and now.  (Click here )….

Do you have any old photographs of your house or area from a few years ago?  If you have please email Adrian or Dave:  photos@cpraonline.org.

We will collect the picture, scan it, and return it to you undamaged.  We will then take a photo to match the location, and put everything side by side on our CPRA web pages.   We hope you can help.  Click here….

Trams in Chester

The link above will take you to the Chester Chronicle site, where there is a fascinating 5 minute ‘video’ of Chester in the 1930’s, showing trams in the city centre, and also glimpses of the River Dee.

Tram in Chester St.Saltney

This 1930’s photo of a tram on Chester Street, Saltney is one of several images on the Chronicle website. It is possible that the gentleman with the bicycle is on his way to Morgan’s Cycle shop, which is still in existence, slightly higher up Chester Street
