THE VICTORIA Pier in Colwyn Bay will feature on an ITV Welsh heritage programme.

The story of the pier will be the subject of Vanished Wales, an ITV Wales series that reveals the lost landmarks of Wales and the heritage that's disappeared from its towns and cities since the 1960s.

Colwyn Bay Pier Trust would like to hear from people who have fond memories of the pier as a visitor, a member of staff, a performer or anyone associated with the pier.

ITV producers will be selecting several memory providers to be interviewed for the programme.

The feature will be filmed in mid-August this year and is expected to be screened in January 2024.

Amy Dyke, one of the Directors of the Pier Trust, said: “We are delighted to have been asked to be the subject of an episode in Series 3 of this popular ITV Wales programme.

“The pier has been part of Colwyn Bays history and culture for over 100 years and it is vital that the heritage of Wales is recorded in this way!

“We are thrilled that our campaign to find a solution to extend the current truncated pier is being recognised.
