View of Llandudno towards the West Shore and Deganwy, from the Great Orme

Scope and Content

Looking down on Llandudno, you can see how the town was planned with almost perfectly straight streets, crossing one another. The town was one of the best laid out resorts planned during the nineteenth century. The planning of the town and promenade was originally given to Owen Williams but in 1854 the planning of the slowly growing town was taken out of his hands and vested in a Charing Cross firm of architects, Messrs. Wehnert and Ashdown. Owen Williams moved on to design Rhyl and Trearddur Bay.
