Llandudno is unique within the United Kingdom in that its lifeboat station is located inland, allowing it to launch with equal facility from either the West Shore or the North Shore as needed. Llandudno's active volunteer crews are called out more than ever with the rapidly increasing numbers of small pleasure craft sailing in coastal waters.
The Llandudno Lifeboat is normally on display on the promenade every Sunday and bank holiday Monday from May until October. The ancient parish church dedicated to Saint Tudno stands in a hollow near the northern point of the Great Orme and two miles 3 km from the present town. It was established as an oratory by Tudno, a 6th-century monk, but the present church dates from the 12th century and it is still used on summer Sunday mornings. Llandudno is home to a Jewish centre in Church Walks, which serves the local Jewish population - one of few in North Wales.
Bodysgallen Hall is a manor house nearby to the south near the village of Llanrhos. This listed historical building derives primarily from the 17th century, and has several later additions. Bodysgallen was constructed as a tower house in the Middle Ages to serve as defensive support for nearby Conwy Castle. Llandudno is twinned with the Flemish town of Wormhout 10 miles 16 km from Dunkirk.
It was there that many members of the Llandudno-based 69th Territorial Regiment were ambushed and taken prisoner. Later, at nearby Esquelbecq on 28 May , the prisoners were shot. During the —18 war this Brigade, a major part of the 38th Welsh Division, took part in the Battle of the Somme and the Brigade was ordered to take Mametz Wood. Two days of fighting brought about the total destruction of Mametz village by shelling.

After the war, the people of Llandudno including returning survivors from the 38th Welsh Division contributed generously to the fund for the reconstruction of the village of Mametz. The town also hosted the Liverpool Olympic Festival in and Matthew Arnold gives a vivid and lengthy description of s Llandudno — and of the ancient tales of Taliesin and Maelgwn Gwynedd that are associated with the local landscape — in the first sections of the preface to On the Study of Celtic Literature Elisabeth of Wied, the Queen consort of Romania and also known as writer Carmen Sylva, stayed in Llandudno for five weeks in On taking her leave, she described Wales as "a beautiful haven of peace".
The international art gallery, Oriel Mostyn is situated in Vaughan Street next to the post office. It was built in to house the art collection of Lady Augusta Mostyn.
It was requisitioned in for use as an army drill hall and later became a warehouse before being returned to use as an art gallery in Following a major revamp the gallery was renamed simply 'Mostyn' in Interestingly, both of the Boston area Banksy pieces are on Essex St:. Does that mean anything? Is there an Essex Street in any of the other nearby towns? Most of these seem improbable to me, other than maybe Brookline, or maybe Somerville or Charlestown. But they start getting pretty suburban after that.

But, again, why "Essex"? In a comment on this photo , Birbeck helps clarify:. I can only surmise that he's having a 'dig' at Essex UK, especially with the misspelling of 'Loitering'. It was also the region that once had Europe's largest Ford motor factory. In its heyday, 1 in 3 British cars were made in Dagenham, Essex.
Pay was good for such unskilled labour, generations worked mind-numbing routines on assembly lines for 80 years. In the recession ended the dream. Supposedly, this photo or one of the others I took appeared in the Globe on 15 May , but I haven't been able to find it.

The son of a photocopier technician, he trained as a butcher but became involved in graffiti during the great Bristol aerosol boom of the late s. His street art , which combines graffiti writing with a distinctive stencilling technique, is similar to Blek le Rat , who began to work with stencils in in Paris and members of the anarcho-punk band Crass who maintained a graffiti stencil campaign on the London Tube System in the late s and early s.

His art has appeared in cities around the world. Banksy does not sell photos of street graffiti. Banksy's first film, Exit Through The Gift Shop , billed as "the world's first street art disaster movie", made its debut at the Sundance Film Festival. From the start he used stencils as elements of his freehand pieces, too. He claims he changed to stencilling whilst he was hiding from the police under a train carriage, when he noticed the stencilled serial number  and by employing this technique, he soon became more widely noticed for his art around Bristol and London.

In August , Banksy, on a trip to the Palestinian territories, created nine images on Israel's highly controversial West Bank barrier. He reportedly said "The Israeli government is building a wall surrounding the occupied Palestinian territories.

The tribute was for year-old British graffiti artist Ozone, who was hit by an underground train in Barking , East London, along with fellow artist Wants, on 12 January He also wrote a note on his website, saying:.
The last time I hit this spot I painted a crap picture of two men in banana costumes waving hand guns. A few weeks later a writer called Ozone completely dogged it and then wrote 'If it's better next time I'll leave it' in the bottom corner. When we lost Ozone we lost a fearless graffiti writer and as it turns out a pretty perceptive art critic.
Ozone - rest in peace. Banksy, as expected, did not turn up to collect his award, and continued with his notoriously anonymous status. It describes how a shipment of lipstick to the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp immediately after its liberation at the end of World War II helped the internees regain their humanity.

The animatronic pets in the store window include a mother hen watching over her baby Chicken McNuggets as they peck at a barbecue sauce packet, and a rabbit putting makeup on in a mirror.
The council says it will remove any graffiti, regardless of the reputation of its creator, and specifically stated that Banksy "has no more right to paint graffiti than a child". Robert Davis, the chairman of the council planning committee told The Times newspaper: "If we condone this then we might as well say that any kid with a spray can is producing art".
