Digital colour photograph from a survey of four surviving promenade shelters between Rhos-on-Sea and Colwyn Bay. The Modernist style shelters, built c.1969, were part of the post-war optimism in the return of the seaside holiday and the accompanying spending that was taking place in updating the facilities at resorts such as Rhos and Colwyn Bay.

Digital image from an UAV survey of Dobby's Grave looking north-east across Freshwater West beach. The low cairn constructed of beach pebbles, commemorates the fictional character ‘Dobby the Elf’, whose death scene and burial was filmed at Freshwater West for the film ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1’. The cairn has become a place of peaceful contemplation for many of its visitors.
