Visited the ship in north wales with woopashoopaa vulex and Telf great looking ship with some good graffitti. Lots of barbed wire and fences around the ship but managed to get to the ship but then we heard " your not supposed to be here" by the secca guy coming from his cabin. Did manage to get some pictures was a nice leisurely look around and nice scenery to be had.on with my history and pics.... On August 10th, 1979, a former Sealink passenger ferry called The Duke of Lancaster" was beached at Llanerch-y-Mor in North Wales with the intention of turning it into a floating leisure and retail complex called The Fun Ship but the project never achieved it's full potential due to many long running legal disputes with the local council. Make no bones about it, until it was converted into a car ferry she was one of the finest vessels afloat at the time. The first class quarters in the late fifties and early sixties were the best around, silver service restaurants, state rooms and luxurious cabins. In fact, the facilities and the accommodation on board Lancaster were so good she was frequently taken out of her usual ferry service and used as a cruise liner with frequent annual cruises around Scotland, Scandinavia and the Mediterranean.

Haven't seen any thing on this place it was a big site with showrooms offices and big warehouses. Couldn't find much on the history of it but here's a bit I found. So on with the pictures and history .. history WHILE factory workers across the country are facing possible redundancies as companies fall victim to the credit crunch, workers at a Mostyn firm have been through it all before â€“ and come out the other side. When the employees of Solar Fires and Fireplaces Ltd found themselves jobless in 2003, as the company went into receivership, they decided to do something about it. Workers re-mortgaged their homes, took out bank loans, and scraped together as much money as they could to buy the firm for themselves. But as you may tell from my pictures it didn't quite turn out the way they planned..........
