The Face of Authority - Duke of Lancaster/The Black Duke
In 1979 a project to create The Funship ahead of its time it was to become a modern leisure complex offering a wealth of activities. Prior to arriving in Motryn North Wales it had the FULL SUPPORT OF THE LOCAL COUNCIL, went on to employ 200 people and in the early 1980s was the third most popular attraction in Wales.

CORRUPTION - As soon as the ship arrived Delyn Borough Council IMMEDIATELY attacked the venture and became unhelpful virtually over night, their reluctance to help the project soon became outright hostile and started to impose totally unreasonable conditions.

The Duke is now being relaunched as an Open Air Art Gallery. Please help support the project.
