Trains & Tracks On Holy Island, Anglesey, Wales

We had travelled from Manchester on the steam train on the left of the photo, to Holyhead railway station, which serves the Welsh town of Holyhead on Holy Island, which is just off the larger Island of Anglesey, North Wales, 2012.

    1. Thank you Andy, glad it bought back some memories, I like it when photos do that πŸ™‚ It always feels like going back about 30 years when we visit Anglesey, which is good, seems to be a slower pace of life…..might be wrong but that is how it seems to me, a bit like here in the Fens πŸ™‚

      1. I was actually very disappointed with my time in Anglesey, the people were fairly unfriendly I found, a lot of people seem to have retired there from Manchester & Liverpool, and they came across as very unsociable people 😦
        Coming from Cornwall, we are used to people retiring to the area, but I have never noticed feeling unwelcome, the retired people in Cornwall seem to really embrace the Cornish culture. I guess my judgement was slightly clouded by the fact that I wasn’t enjoying the job I had there in Llangefni. But the scenery in Anglesey was wonderful πŸ™‚

      2. it is amazing, and quite sad how a job can really affect how we see a place!
        But I imagine Norfolk is generally a much nicer place to live than Bedfordshire, rural communities tend to be much more laid back than the hustle and bustle of those areas around big cities.

    1. I’m not to sure how long it took now about 3 hours and then a few hours looking around Holyhead and then back again. You have breakfast, lunch and an evening meal on the train and as much drink as you want. Nice to be waited on πŸ™‚
