Trip To Llandudno
At the beginning of August 2013, the Friends of Llandudno museum
invited the Commitee and members of the Bacup Natural History
Society to visit Llandudno. The intenary for the trip would include a
visit to the Little Orme to see where Blodwen, our bronze age
skeleton was found and where a local expert would outline the history
and geology of the area.
A trip to the Great Orme Copper mines which were uncovered in 1987
and date back 4,000 years, to the bronze age and where it is thought
the copper which made the bronze spearhead that accompanied
Blodwen was mined. The trip would culminate in a visit to the
Llandudno Museum itself, after a lovely fish and chip lunch.After a
very enjoyable day, in which the sun shone all day long, members of
the Commitee presented a Book of Bacup, written by our own Ken
Bowden as a thankyou and gift of friendship to the Llandudno
Museum, with a return open invitation to all the staff and members of
the Llandudno Museum, to come and visit the Nat.
A big thankyou to our Membership Secretary Adrian Schofield who
after all his hard work of gathering the names together was
unfortunatley not able to come, along with thanks to Paul Lydiate for
helping to organise the trip and itenary. Thanks also to Matt our guide
on the Little Orme and Sian from the copper mine.
