TOWYN AND ITS FUTURE. There can be little donoi that there is a prosperous future before this beautiful resort. Mr. Corbett, to whom allusion has already been made, is possessed of wealth and owns a good deal of property in Towyn and its neighbourhood, and is enthusiastic in the promotion of its develop- ment. He is the owner of several thousand acres of land with a sea frontage of about two miles in extent, with Cader Idris and other mountains in the background, and near the esplanade facing the sea, there are from 60 to 100 acres of land well adapted for buildingsâland not only eminently suitable for building purposes, but also having a dry sub-soil, and the sites command a full view of Cardigan Bay, as well as of the Carnarvonshire coast and the Merionethshire and Cardiganshire mountains. This proposed part of the town has been specially designed with a view of command- ing the best possible views of sea and mountain. The beach for bathing is equal or superior to any, not only in England and Wales, but in Europe. The sands are soft and level, and a child may walk some distance in the water without being out of its depth. There are no currents. To a practical ob- server it must be evident that Towyn-on-Sea must, ere long, become one of the leading watering places in England. A few years ago Mr. Corbett offered several prizes, ranging in value from X30 to X150 for the best plan for building villas on the sea front. For the present, we believe, he proposes to build about half-a-dozen terrace houses, and two or three detached and semi-detached villas, as models of what the rest will be like. There are many other eligible sites on different parts of the estate.
