    Default Rhoscrowther Farm house, Pembrokeshire


    Visited with Walsh.

    Rhoscrowther is a village and parish in Pembrokeshire, near Pembroke, and on the south shore of Milford Haven.
    Much of the parish, and almost all the village except the church, was cleared with the establishment of the BP oil terminal in 1961 immediately south of the village, and the Texaco refinery in 1964 immediately to the north. This meant that many houses were demolished to make way for the growing refinery.

    In the centre of the lost village remains the derelict buildings of the village farm. The interior is mainly stripped but has great character:








    Straw walls:






    Nice modern bathroom:



    Kitchen:



    Walsh to add his photos shortly.

    Much love. ;)

    Nice pics

    Shame someone's punched a whole in that lovely wattle and daub wall.
    Some days you wake and immediately start to worry. Nothing in particular is wrong, it's just the suspicion that forces are aligning quietly and there will be trouble

    Nice find! I Love old tired houses in the country slowly being eaten up by the surrounding trees and plants.

    I would imagine that there is no chance of buying this place, as beautiful as it is and with its great location, its unfortunatly owned by chevron refinery! They have only let it stand for this long because its a listed building, and couldnt care less if it fell down tomorrow! If your really interested in possibly purchasing the farm then try contacting Chevron refinery directly at:

    Chevron Ltd

    Pembroke Plant,Pembroke, SA71 5SJ Wales

    Tel: 01646 641331

    Dont hold your breath on getting anywhere though. Id buy it myself if i thought i had a chance in securing it.
    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
