    Talking Tenby Mortuary


    This must be one of the most interesting one room explores I've done. Nowhere near a hospital and nestled in the middle of a housing estate and industrial buildings is this little mortuary. With the lack of fridges I can only assume that it was used by undertakers to prepare bodies for burial.













    Was it you who brought me to this place beyond the moon and stars.

    What an amazing place, its good to see both the mortuary tables still there and intact, and the sinks too.

    Very interesting that it isn't anywhere near a hospital or the like. Like the decor, not the usual mortuary decor.

    Cheers DS,

    There was even a white sheet in there too. A bit grubby but there was one there.

    We just opened the door and went it. I was so surprised it wasn't smashed up.

    That's just what I was thinking...it's actually quite tasteful for a mortuary! ;)
    As I'm not a fan of mortuaries I have to say that it's the pic of the light bulb with the spiders web that I like.

    Cheers :)
