    Default Dulais Rock Inn - Aberdulais - Aug '16


    Sadly, the historic Dulais Rock public house which dates back to the 17th century is now in decline and has been boarded up since 2008. This is about as much information as I could find on it...

    I don't think this one has been done before. I was told there was no way in recently, but thought I'd go check it out as I'm local. I went up in daylight and it seemed like everyone was watching me so took a few snaps and decided to come back after dark. Managed to fight my way through the weeds and brambles, got around the back to a set of steps leading up to a second floor patio area. This way was a no go, but was a good place to have a breather, heading back down I spotted a very thin way in, luckily the diet is going well at the moment! Anyway once in, I was on edge and in darkness the whole way round, so my shots are not my best, but I'll try and pick out some of the best.

    I've just had a look and still coming up with no results. A lot of sites are saying it's still open, even though it's been shut for eight years.

    Nicely done with this one. On the front of the building it says built in 1648, its done well for that length of time. Just a few issues and a paint up and it could be made into - maybe a gift shop with cafeteria. That fireplace looks original.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
