Subject: Proposed Demolition of Alice Liddell's Seaside Home

To The Lewis Carroll Society Mailing List:

We have had the following note from John Lawson-Reay, Chairman of the
Llandudno Seaside Buildings Preservation Trust, about the proposed
demolition of Penmorfa ... the Liddell's holiday home in Llandudho,
Wales.

Please would you read the message and if you feel like supporting the
cause, perhaps you would send an e-mail or written letter.  Obviously,
it would be a great shame if the building were to be pulled down.

Here is John's message:

"Penmorfa has for the past twelve months been shorn of the later
extensions while the developers have done nothing to protect it.
There has been much concern, locally.  Now a planning application has
been made for the demolition of the house so that the developer can
use the whole site for 29 luxury flats.  It may be that the company
had no real intention of retaining Penmorfa.

The site is in a conservation area which was extended a few years ago
to include the hotel, thus to recognising the significance of the
building.  We have appealed to the Wales body for conservation, CADW,
to list the building, but they say that there is no particular
architectural merit in the house and that there are similar buildings
in Llandudno.  We seriously disagree.  We understand that it is
described as "Pseudo-Gothic," contrasting with the other buildings in
Llandudno which are "Classical" in design.

However our concern is with its important historical associations
which we consider to be of most significance.  The fact that the house
was built for his family by Dean Liddell and the fact that they used
it for extended vacations over eleven years should surely be enough to
protect it.

We are getting together a body of protestors locally but any
objections from further afield could be crucial.  Could you circulate
your membership and ask them to e-mail or write their objections to
demolition to Conwy County Borough Council?

E-mails addressed to

with reference to applications for the demolition of Penmorfa, numbers
0/34325 and 0/34236.

Or, by letter to The Chief Planning Officer, Civic Offices, Colwyn
Bay, Conwy, Wales, LL29 8AR.

We would want to emphasise the historical importance of Penmorfa as
well as its uniqueness.  There is much urgency required.

We would appreciate any help."

Please do your best,

Mark Richards (LCS Chairman)
