The former owner, Gregory Shankar, 53, was jailed for 15 months in February 2010 after admitting stealing £66k from the Flintshire festival, of which he is a former chairman.

Shankar, from Mold, Flintshire, used festival funds to prop up his own failing business.

At the time, he owned the Bryn Awel Hotel in Mold, and admitted two fraud charges after taking money from the Mold Hotel and Restaurant Association, which was set up to run the annual festival.

The 18-bedroom hotel closed in 2011 after being a key part of the town’s tourism trade for more than 50 years.

Looks familiar... just off the A55 or somewhere else? I'm sure I have seen this before on my 90's trips to Wales during my drug days!

This one is right in the middle of the town centre
Wales is well known for its magic mushrooms !
