One thought on “Colwyn Bay Heritage Group.

  1. Colwyn Bay looks much better now that the streets have been resurfaced but the new paving slabs are particularly dangerous in icy conditions. The market was hard to get around because of this. Surely the town planners should make sure the town is accessible at all times of the year.
