On a trip to Werneth Low we visited a site where a restaurant used to be. It closed and then was abandoned and now it has been demolished. I never saw the restaurant and have no idea what it was called but some things still stand. What you can't see in the picture is a plaque from the AA that points to places in the distant that you might be able to see from here and some you can't with a memorial for two people called Shelmerdine, husband and wife I assume -the last of which I believe was a victim of Shipman. It's strange that when the demolish some things they just leave other things behind. Here of course we have the steps from the car park up to the restaurant. You can even see the markings for the car park with the reserved spaces just not in this picture. I have never been to the restaurant but can only imagine how it looked when it was night when you glanced out of the window as you were eating you steak in chips in the 80s. I can only imagine it would be like the view we saw when we stayed at a hotel that looked over Llandudno in a hotel that has also been demolished. It seemed so nice to see the lights of the town below was we were sat so high up as we saw the wind lash the surrounds as we sat in luxury.

It was a lovely place to visit. You could buy a drink and admire the views. The restaurant itself was very clean and no trouble. The war memorial was very pleasant to walk to on a sunny day.

That does sound nice but a little before I moved into the area though my Wife has been there I think.
