Synopsis

For more than 100 years, the Great Orme Tramway has served faithfully the northern Wales seaside resort of Llandudno, providing residents and visitors alike with a truely spectacular means of gaining the summit of the Gogarth – (the Great Orme) – headland.

Here, in the first full-length, profusely-illustrated study of this unique cable-worked line, tramway historian Keith Turner has distilled a quarter of a century’s research in order to tell its fascinating story from 19th Century promotion to 21st Century centenary celebrations – and the many changes of fortune it has weathered along the way.
