At the outbreak of World War I, the last king, Love Pritchard, offered himself and the men of Bardsey Island for military service, but he was refused as he was considered too old at the age of 71. Pritchard took umbrage, and declared the island a neutral power. In 1925 Pritchard left the island for the mainland, to seek a less laborious way of life, but died the following year. Bardsey Island Trust : ''History'' Retrieved 2009-08-16 Life was far from easy for the quarrymen, especially those who worked on the higher slopes. They were expected to walk up to the summit area in all weather and faced losing pay if unable to reach the top. Naturally a strong spirit of camaraderie developed and this was reflected in the town's chapels, pubs and cultural societies. Granite was exported by rail to ports like Liverpool and the cities of England and by sea from the two quarrying jetties to Liverpool and also to a number of European ports such as Hamburg. 19th century to present The town's population remained at less than a thousand until the arrival of the railways and the holidaymakers in the 19th and 20th centuries. "Sunny Prestatyn" became famous for its beach, clean seas and promenade entertainers, and visiting for a bathe was considered very healthful by city dwelling Victorian (Victorian era)s. During the Second World War the holiday camps were used as billets for British soldiers, many of whom were also sent to live with locals. Despite being close to Liverpool, the area was not bombed by the Luftwaffe, but was one of the few British towns to be bombed by the Regia Aeronautica (the Italian Air Force) in June 1941. Despite this many evacuees came to Denbighshire from various northern cities. In 1833 the old Roman mineral water caves (believed to have been discovered by soldiers of the XXth Roman Legion) were excavated in an attempt to attract people to them. In 1863 Lord Willoughby de Eresby built a small bath-house, replaced a decade later by the current building. Large numbers of people came, no doubt aided by national advertising, and the declaration by Dr. Hayward, a fashionable medical specialist from Liverpool, that this was "Probably the best spa in the United Kingdom". Baddeley (M. J. B. Baddeley)'s guidebook notes contains the quote - "inconceivably nasty and correspondingly efficaceous". In more recent times clinical trials have proven that the Spa water is a medically effective iron supplement.

''"But I was very worried about taking it on because I'm not Jewish. I'm a Liverpool Irish Catholic and this role was such a responsibility because it involved a huge and emotive part of the history of the Jewish race."'' Collins studied at the Central School of Speech and Drama in London. Before turning to acting, she worked as a teacher until 1962. She made her stage debut at Windsor (Windsor, Berkshire) in ''A Gazelle in Park Lane'' in 1962 and her West End (West End theatre) debut in ''Passion Flower Hotel'' in 1965, and many stage roles followed. Her first film was ''Secrets of a Windmill Girl'' (1966). Early life Born on Rodney Street (Rodney Street, Liverpool) Liverpool Record Office Annual Report 2008-2009 in Liverpool, Monsarrat was educated at Winchester (Winchester College) and Trinity College, Cambridge. He intended to practise law. The law failed to inspire him, however, and he turned instead to writing, moving to London and supporting himself as a freelance writer for newspapers while writing four novels and a play in the space of five years (1934–1939). He later commented in his autobiography that the 1931 Invergordon Naval Mutiny (Invergordon Mutiny) influenced his interest in politics and social and economic issues after college. * '''Jerzy Dudek''', football player (born 23 March 1973 in Rybnik, Poland) - Dudek, a famous Polish goalkeeper began his professional career with Sokół Tychy (GKS 71 Tychy), a team in the Polish National Football League where he played one season in 1995-96.

service highly

(mainly north east). Both bus stations have travel centres with staff who will assist with which bus to get and from where. These travel centres also stock free transport guides and detailed timetable leaflets for each bus and train service. Highly recommended are the free 'map and guide' leaflets of the four main transport areas: Liverpool, Wirral, Southport and St. Helens; these giant fold-out street maps show at a glance the route of every bus service (individual service leaflets are required for timetable information). In terms of pre-paid travel passes, Saveaway, Solo and Trio travel passes can be purchased from travel centres or Merseyrail stations. Liverpool and its surrounding areas are divided up into areas, each sub-divided into zones: the cost of each ticket typically depends upon how many zones areas the purchaser wants to travel in. If a journey takes the ticket holder outside the boundary allowed by their ticket, they can typically purchase a regular ticket on the bus or train to cover just the extra required. * Solo and Trio passes are perhaps better suited to long stays in the city, such as students or visiting workers who travel regularly on public transport. They are weekly, monthly or annual travel passes tied to a specific person, featuring a passport-style photo of the owner, usable at any time of the day. Solo tickets may be used only on buses; Trio tickets may be used on buses, ferries or Merseyrail trains. The initial pass may only be purchased from Merseytravel centres, but once acquired may be renewed (up to three days before expiry) at any travel or train station in Merseyside. It is possible to renew Solo or Trio tickets by any duration: for example, it is permitted to add just a single week onto a ticket initially purchased as a monthly ticket. * Saveaway tickets are ideal for the majority of short term visitors, such as tourists. They are cheap, disposable, off-peak (after 09:30) single-day tickets that cover buses, ferries and Merseyrail trains. Unlike the other tickets, Saveaways are also sold in some corner shops and libraries. Saveaway tickets may be bulk purchased in advance; each ticket is a scratch card that allows the owner to choose its date of use. They may also be used by more than one person (although not at the same time, obviously!) They are priced at £3.40 for unlimited off-peak travel in 'Area C' (covering the city centre, west out to Huyton, north to Crosby and south to Speke), and £4.60 for an 'All-Zone' ticket covering the whole of the Merseytravel area (perfect for visiting the Wirral, Chester or Southport). The main 'metro style' train stations in the city centre are Central, Lime Street, Moorfields and James Street. Lime Street is the terminus for many national lines and the local city line to Manchester. Moorfields is just off Dale Street, ideal for the business centre of Liverpool and Central is usually used by shoppers and visitors. Local trains run very frequently between Hunts Cross, Kirkby, Ormskirk and Southport on the Northern line. They run every 15 minutes from Monday to Saturday and 30 minutes on Sunday. Central station is the main station for the Northern line, although the 'loop' links the three main city centre stations. The Wirral line forms the link between the Lime Street, Moorfields and Central, so all of these stations act as an interchange between the City, Northern and Wirral lines. A new station in the south of Liverpool replaced the old Garston and Allerton stations in June 2006. This links the Northern and City lines and is ideal for the airport. It also acts as an interchange for a number of local buses. Adult bus fares on the main operators are: Arriva flat fare of £1.90 throughout the Liverpool area, £3.70 for Liverpool area Day Ticket, £4.40 for Northwest area. Stagecoach flat fare of £1.80 throughout the Liverpool area, £3.30 for Liverpool area Day Ticket, £3.60 for Northwest area. Arriva and Stagecoach Day and Weekly tickets my be used on either companies buses on new Quality Partnership Routes 10 10A 10B 10C(Huyton,St Helens), 86 86A 86D 86E(Speke,Airport,South Parkway), 53 53A (Crosby,Aintree), 14 14X (Croxteth,Kirkby) Similar flat fares are available from the other operators as well. There are also limited night bus services on a Saturday night costing £3.00. Some buses are subsidised by Merseytravel, such as early morning and hospital services, and there is a fixed fare of £1.10. This includes the City Centre Circular buses C1 to C5. If you plan to travel a lot, a prepaid pass presents much better value. Generally speaking, you save money with two or more train trips or three or more bus journeys.

For so long it was neglected and run down, but these days most of the city centre is quite splendid. Pier Head The harbour of Liverpool has played a very important role in modern history of the city. The wharf area drained by the Mersey River gives to the city an air of antiquity, which is quite strange and interesting because of the contrast between modern buildings and conventional buildings. The Pier Head has been considered as world heritage by UNESCO * Commons:category:Liverpool Dmoz:Regional Europe United Kingdom England Merseyside Liverpool Wikipedia:Liverpool

. There is also a connection between Liverpool and Belfast via the Isle of Man. The world's largest car ferry, ''Ulysses (MV Ulysses)'', is operated by Irish Ferries (Irish Continental) on the Dublin–Holyhead route. The Isle of Man Sea Terminal in Douglas is served by frequent ferries to and from Heysham. Douglas is also served by frequent summer services to and from Liverpool with a more restricted timetable operating in winter. There are also limited summer-only services to and from Belfast and Dublin. All ferries are operated by the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company. His concert career began at the young age of nine when his father toured both Isaac and his sister, Clementina, throughout northern Spain. By the time he had reached 12, he had made many attempts to run away from home. A popular myth is that at the age of 12 Albéniz stowed away in a ship bound for Buenos Aires. He then made his way via Cuba to the United States, giving concerts in New York and San Francisco and then travelled to Liverpool, London and Leipzig. Gramophone Archive By age 15, he had already given concerts worldwide. This over-dramatized story is not entirely true. Albéniz did travel the world as a performer, however he was accompanied by his father. As a customs agent he was required to travel frequently. After a juxtaposition of Isaac's concert dates, on his alleged adventure, and his father's travel itinerary it is apparent that they were traveling together. After a short stay at the Leipzig Conservatory, in 1876 he went to study at the Royal Conservatory (Royal Conservatory of Brussels) in Brussels after King Alonso's personal secretary, Guillermo Morphy obtained him a royal grant.

Liverpool

'''Liverpool''' ( The city is within the historic county (Historic counties of England) of Lancashire. Its urbanisation and expansion were largely brought about by its status as a major port (Port of Liverpool), which included its participation in the Atlantic slave trade. Liverpool was the port of registry of the ocean liner RMS ''Titanic'' (RMS Titanic), and many other Cunard (Cunard Line) and White Star (White Star Line) ocean liners such as the RMS ''Lusitania'' (RMS Lusitania), ''Queen Mary (RMS Queen Mary)'', and ''Olympic (RMS Olympic)''.

Liverpool's status as a port city has contributed to its diverse population, which, historically, was drawn from a wide range of peoples, cultures, and religions, particularly those from Ireland. The city is also home to the oldest Black African community (Black British) in the country and the oldest Chinese community (British Chinese) in Europe. Natives of Liverpool are referred to as '''Liverpudlians''' (from a long-standing jocular alteration of 'Liverpool' to 'Liverpuddle') and colloquially as "Scousers", a reference to "scouse (scouse (food))", a form of stew. The word "Scouse" has also become synonymous with the Liverpool accent (accent (sociolinguistics)) and dialect. Many people "self-identify" as Liverpudlians or Scousers without actually being born or living within the city boundaries of Liverpool. Many people from within the greater Merseyside area consider themselves thus, although many do not. Conversely, a number of people from Liverpool itself may not consider themselves Scousers, since the term for them may have pejorative overtones.

Tourism forms a significant part of the city's modern economy. The city celebrated its 800th anniversary in 2007, and it held the European Capital of Culture title together with Stavanger, Norway, in 2008. Labelled the "World Capital City of Pop" by ''Guinness World Records'', the popularity of The Beatles, and other groups from the Merseybeat (Beat music) era and later, contributes to Liverpool's status as a tourist destination.

Several areas of Liverpool city centre were granted World Heritage Site status by UNESCO in 2004. The Liverpool Maritime Mercantile City includes the Pier Head, Albert Dock, and William Brown Street. Liverpool is also the home of two Premier League football (Association football) clubs, Liverpool (Liverpool F.C.) and Everton (Everton F.C.). Matches between the two are known as the Merseyside derby. The world-famous Grand National also takes places annually at Aintree Racecourse on the outskirts of the city.
