Our summer coach trip:
Saturday 22nd July
This day excursion begins with a visit to St Winefride's Well - a place of public pilgrimage for over thirteen centuries. Alongside the shrine building is an interpretative exhibition, including a collection of wooden crutches discarded by the cured in former times.

We travel on to Colwyn Bay, a Victorian seaside town which is now undergoing a series of regeneration initiatives. Our hosts the Colwyn Bay Heritage Group will take us on guided walks, highlighting the role of the town during WW2 (when it was the temporary home of the Ministry of Food) and looking at some recently-restored buildings. We finish with a visit to Rhos-on-Sea, and the smallest place of worship in the U.K.

The coach departs from Gateacre Brow (Black Bull) at 9.15 a.m. The trip is organised by the Wavertree Society, so the first pick-up point is Lake Road L15 (near the Picton Clock) at 9 o'clock. The cost is £15 per head - payable at time of booking. Tickets will be on sale at our talk on 5th June, or (Gateacre Society members) please refer to your Newsletter for details of how to book your place.

If you are not a member of the Gateacre Society but would like to come on the trip, please email us for further information.
