Abandoned Village, South Wales
This is Boys Village near St. Athan in the Vale of Glamorgan. I don't know much about, but I know it's been abandoned for a few years now. The Wiki entry on the place is less than useful.
Having recently returned to the area I thought I'd best pay it a visit with my long time pal and fellow explorer duckandcover.
