Summary

Guy Martin visits Llandudno in north Wales to try to return the seaside resort to its former Victorian glory. Over the course of the winter, Guy gets stuck into restoration work on the town's pier, rebuilds an original helter skelter and services the town's funicular tramway. He learns how the appetite for sea-bathing began when word spread that it was good for the glands and finds out how engineering developments in factories also led to a revolution in musical instruments.
