You've done a puffin Bill and gone too far!

We did drive through Amlwch and spotted the church that was on the postcard thread a few weeks ago. It looks a lot better in real life than it does from Mt Google's photos. I knew I recognised it from somewhere but I'd almost passed it by the time I realised it was on Stampboards!

The sign narrowed the field a bit and I thought you'd been up to Whitby to check out the black box there so that was the first place I looked.

Here's a new box for you to track down:

N Wales is correct, but it is not Anglesey.

We actually stopped at Llangefni and parked up. We failed to find anything remotely of interest to us so only used about 10 minutes of the 2 hours I'd paid for at the pay and display car park!

We decided that Llangefni was a functional town, catering to the needs of the locals.

It was a very pleasant day weather wise and Llangefni's was about the only car park we came across on Anglesey that wasn't chokka.

Getting silly, isn't it? Same over here - we went to Robin Hood's Bay last week and even though we arrived at 10:30 am, we couldn't get in, which is why we ended up in Whitby. That was bad enough too.
At least in Brid we can walk to some nice places!

Next guess - Bethesda.

Bethesda is a bit too far west.

We've tried to get to Robin Hood's Bay a few times over the years and have never found anywhere to park.

Some of the bays on the north side of Anglesey are really beautiful so I can understand why they are so popular.

Bull Bay - my very basic photographic skills simply don't do it justice.

Yep, Llanrwst is correct. Your guess fell through the crack - apologies.

I wonder if puffin has found the river Conwy yet.

Here's a pic to help him if he hasn't:

Well the one in my picture is in a wall in Llanrwst and it is definitely active 'cos I posted a card to my mum in it and it arrived the following morning. FairyFoot has found it, as has Bill (pipped at the post again!).

As to the new box, it would appear to be somewhere over in Bill's territory in the vicinity of York.
