Colomendy holiday camp adored by Scousers through the years

Merseyside school children across the generations will remember the site as captured here

Images unearthed from our archive capture a much-loved North Wales holiday camp through the years.

Although Colomendy occupies a site at Loggerheads near Mold, it has been a rite of passage for Merseyside school children for more than 70 years.

Originally a site for evacuee children from Liverpool during World War Two, after the war the site was transferred to Liverpool Council, with a covenant which retained its use for the benefit of the city's children.

Hundreds of youngsters will remember heading to the holiday camp each year, enjoying everything from dib dab lollipops to having a rivalry with the other school visiting at the same time.

Liverpool Council issued a 30-year lease for the site in 2007 to Kingswood Colomendy Ltd, a subsidiary of Kingswood Learning and Leisure which provides residential educational facilities.

Now, grim pictures showing the dilapidated state of parts of the North Wales site have since been shared and a Liverpool Councillor has submitted a report raising concerns about authority's management of Colomendy site.

The ECHO has launched a 56-page nostalgia supplement in print. It's packed with photos from the recent past and the not-so-recent, from shopping, fashion and music to the Albert Dock – plus an elephant on parade in Woolton. You can order a copy here.

For many, Colomendy still holds pleasant childhood memories, as captured in these images.

Here are 29 fascinating photos of North Wales from our archives Mirrorpix that will take you on a trip down memory lane.
