History of Marine Lake


Kathryn hopes that anyone who has an interest in history, be in Rhyl, Stanningley or fairground rides, will find something new in the information she has gathered The Marine Lake was in front of her home and Ocean Beach at the back.



Friends member Kathryn Nedd’s second book is a long, thorough, and entertaining history of the Marine Lake and Ocean Beach. The book has 223 A5 format pages and includes 103 photographs, many in colour.
Many of the illustrations Kathryn has inherited from her father the late Eric Hughes, to which she has added recently another box of old photographs sent to her by Rhyl showman Dave Skelly. The story started in the 1890s when the concept of forming the lake was originated by Townshend Mainwaring MP, who could see the site from his home at Foryd Hall.
