Llandudno Heritage Trust
Llandudno Heritage Trust is a registered charity dedicated to the preservation and improvement of the local area of Llandudno and its environs.
The Trust's activities include extensive cave mapping on the Great Orme, the discovery and renovation of many wells in the limestone cliffs overlooking the Victorian holiday resort of Llandudno, the publication of more than twenty booklets on subjects as diverse as the Butterflies of the Orme and Cave Poems of the Orme, the creation of a permanent visitor and Heritage Centre at the site of the Rest and Be Thankful Cafe situated halfway around the Orme Marine Drive and the Trust's involvement in the magnificent Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza.
Llandudno, at its peak, boasted a full orchestra on the Happy Valley open air theatre stage, playing to packed crowds of holidaymakers. Like so much in Llandudno, this is now, sadly, a thing of the past. Holiday patterns have changed radically, and, unless Llandudno adapts by preserving the best of the old whilst welcoming the new, its future is far from assured.
The Trust is growing rapidly from comparatively humble beginnings. Originally started by a group of five to take over the running of the town's annual extravaganza, the current membership now exceeds one hundred and the organisation has gone from strength to strength. Please email us if you feel you can contribute, or if you're an expatriate living abroad or if you simply want to be part of it all.
