LYNN STREET ADULT TRAINING CENTRE HOLIDAY IN WALES

1970s

Visitor Tabs

Description

This film in the Hartlepool Council collection records a holiday visit in the 1970s to Conwy, North Wales, of a group of students with learning disabilities from the Lynn Street Adult Training Centre.

A group of students are on a visit to Conwy Castle on the River Conwy estuary and to the Conwy Falls. Travelling shots record landscape views of a lake or river. The students are pictured on the coach.

Snowdon Mountain Railway carriages await passengers and the next shots record the snow-covered peaks of Snowdonia mountains from the train journey.

The students are then at Kinmel Bay, in Conwy County Borough, north-east Wales, and there is footage of the chalets at Palins Holiday Park. At Colwyn Bay, the students and their guardians visit the tourist attraction, Dinosaur World, with shots of model dinosaur exhibits. A sign reads 'Sabre-Toothed Tiger.' A group of the children walk past camera and there are various shots of them looking at the models.
