Talacre lighthouse and beach DJI/P3A

Creator's Description

Talacre lighthouse and beach Talacre is a village in Flintshire on the north coast of Wales in the community of Llanasa. It is near Point of Ayr on the west side of the River Dee estuary and has a sandy beach with dunes with large holiday caravan parks adjacent. The hills of the Clwydian Range behind the village form the eastern boundary of the Vale of Clwyd. The name Talacre is a combination of the Welsh words tal [tal] "end" and "acres", which the dialect of north-east Wales is pronounced acre . This has led to the local English pronunciation / Some sources claim the English version is properly pronounced/ A view of Talacre lighthouse The village is probably most popular for the lighthouse on the nearby beach and the Talacre Beach Holiday Home Park, a short walk away from the Presthaven Sands holiday park. The lighthouse has been noted for numerous ghostly sightings, people claiming to see a figure wearing old fashioned lighthouse keeper clothes and standing in front of the glass dome of the abandoned lighthouse.[3] The lighthouse was featured in popular British television drama Skins, in the episode Skins Pure. Talacre was used by the military during the Second World War, as an aircraft firing range. Fighters flew over the remote village every day, shooting at wooden targets in the dunes and at drogues towed by aircraft. It was also used for testing new devices, such as 'window' the anti-radar foil that, on occasion, covered the whole village with silver. The village is often used as part of Paul O'Grady's comedy act, telling stories of how he spent many summers "Stuck in a four berth caravan in Talacre", and is therefore now part of popular culture as a famous "typically British" seaside holiday resort
