A truly magical 24hours at Plas Newydd - I was there to re-search my great great aunt Majorie Manners who’s beauty & life has been one of fascination for me for some years... we hope something exciting will come of the research we’re doing with @prudenjane I feel even more infatuated with Majorie because of the femininity and creative eye she brought to this jaw dropping place when she married the Marquess of Anglesey. Designed by famous architect James Yatt, who also built Belvoir, it has a gothic style to it that felt very familiar. It’s so exciting to see what the new Lord & Lady Uxbridge will do! the coolest couple with exciting ideas. 🖤 #history#family#oldrelativesandnew#wales#greatbritain#heritage
A late afternoon ride in late October around the small lanes near the coast. Leaves falling, some patches damp from an earlier shower, a cooling wind from the inland mountains. Glimpses of sunshine illuminating the distant mointains & the Great Orme. Exit Rhuallt on the old A55, once a 3 lane main artery from England to the coastal resorts, but now a quiet 3 lane 'country lane', as the traffic is removed to the newer dual carriageway. One of the last rides this year on my #colnagoct1 . Loved it. #Wales#Flintshire#Rhuallt#Dyserth#cycle#campagnolo
ORIEL, the back of the MOSTYN ART GALLERY in Llandudno, the north Wales Victorian seaside resort.
After it was (re)established in 1978 and up until 2010 it was known as Oriel Mostyn (Mostyn Gallery in English). It's a very rare 'modern' building in a town largely preserved in its original Victorian splendour.
Ironically (given that Oriel is part of the large MOSTYN gallery) the preservation of Llandudno is largely due to the very controlling MOSTYN ESTATE, who pretty much own the place in similar fashion to how the Grosvenors (Duke of Westminster) own much of Chester down the coast.
The Oriel Mostyn Gallery was first established in 1901 by wealthy arts benefactor and photographer, Lady Augusta Mostyn. It initially lasted until 1913, created partly to house works by Gwynedd Ladies Art Society after they were denied participation in the male-run Art Society and exhibitions of the time.
Most don't notice this facade because it is in a back street, the sort that is otherwise inhabited by car repair workshops and the sort of enterprises that lurk in railway arches in big cities.
