Penmaenmawr, Conwy

PenmaenmawrConwy Penmaenmawr is a town in the parish of Dwygyfylchi, in Conwy County Borough, Wales. It lies on the North Wales coast between Conwy and Llanfairfechan and was an important quarrying town, though this industry is no longer a major employer. The population (including Dwygyfylchi) was 3857 in 2001. The town was bypassed by the A55 Expressway in the 1980s, losing its old Edwardian period promenade in the process, which was largely replaced by a modern one.
