Staying on the north Wales coast, especially as I was just nine miles away, a visit to Rhyl was most definitely on the agenda.
Although I’d been fishing there during the holiday, I’m referring to a walk around the town itself.
When I was a child, like many others from the Black Country where I lived, it was the holiday destination of choice.
With industry pretty much closing down for two weeks – and that included Baggeridge Brick where my dad worked – the industrial fortnight heralded an exodus to the coast.
There were so many Black Country people in Rhyl, they sold the Express & Star.
I’ve got numerous lovely memories of Rhyl and they always come flooding back whenever I’m in the town.
