Crumble time for Big Apple?


The Big Apple kiosk on the Mumbles was built in the 1930 as part of an advertising initiative for a cider company.

There were kiosks in Porthcawl and Barry but the only remaining Big Apple is now under threat after a car crashed into the solid concrete structure damaging the base of the apple.

The iconic structure was made in a rather unusual way, by pouring concrete and cement into a mould, making restoration expensive and difficult.

However John Bollom, who owns the Big Apple, hopes to restore the landmark to its former glory.
