Photographer's Note

As we all know Craig loves Abandoned subject.
Doesn't matter what it is, could be abandoned planes, cars, truck, homes, hospitals, orphanages, churches, power plants and mills, ships/boats....and Olympic Parks.
Could be something added to this list??
Yes!! Here something special - abandoned pier in Wales.

Victoria Pier is a Grade II listed pier in the seaside resort of Colwyn Bay on the coast of North Wales between Rhyl and Llandudno.
Designed by Maynall & Littlewoods of Manchester, Colwyn Bay's Victoria Pier was one of the later British piers to be built, with construction starting in June 1899 by the Salford firm of William Brown & Sons. Its official opening was on 1 June 1900, when the architect, Mr. Littlewood, handed a golden key to the pier's owners.
I will not copy more, here you can read the whole story: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victoria_Pier

From Llandudno I went back to Liverpool. I bought the National Express ticket from Colwyn Bay. First, it was was difficult to find the bus stop from Llandudno to Colwyn Bay. But a guy from the hostel shower it to me. But in Colwyn Bay I had no idea where it could be. I asked many people, even bus drivers, when the bus stop of National Express was, no one knew. I walked rather nervous around, in different directions. Luckily I had more time. Someone told me to go to railway station. No bus there, but at least it was this ruined pier. Finally in a shop there was a guy who knew. He showed me the way, and later, when I was still unsure, went after me by car, indicating direction. Everything ended well.

On the pier it was written:
ADELAIDWAITH PERYGLUS CADWCH DRAW ODDI WRTH Y PIER
(and in English Dangerous structure, keep away from pier). :
