    Default Dulais Rock Inn- Neath July 17


    Had a nice trek up Neath today with Builder_Dirge, managed to see Tonna Mansion, Pensycynor Wildlife Park and this place, Dulais Rock Inn! Due to it being located in Wales, it was of course raining so there was a lot of slipping and sliding around the place, getting caught in brambles and my feet sinking in mushy...stuff, but it's all good fun.

    On the front the sign says it's been around since the 17th century so the site is quite old! Been abandoned since 2008 and no idea if there's going to be any refurb.

    On to the pics! I'm not the best photographer so bear with me. I hope this is the right forum, since it's an inn with bedrooms I thought Residential would be the appropriate place. Feel free to move if it's wrong.




































    Money shot, I gasped when I went downstairs and saw this creepy ass old table sititng there.
    You could just imagine a party full of well dressed skeletons having a good time here!











    Compared to the rest of the place, the bedrooms didn't look too bad!








    I mean look at the bathroom! It's practically pristine!



    Okay, maybe the other bedrooms weren't too great. I'm not going anywhere near that floor.

    Served a nice meal back in its day, but it is the only public house/hotel that I have come across where staff were instructed to smile by written notice!

    Nice set of images Sean, they do just what is required - tell the story of this place in a clear and interesting way. Cannot ask for anything more in my book.

    Thanks, I never really know what to take pictures of so I just kinda go with what looks good and hopefully shows the place well.

    Good pictures. It looks like "kinda go with what looks good" works here. I just noticed in one bedroom Parazone and Carlsberg, what a mixture.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    Personally when I was recording initial fire or break in scenes, I used a 35mm wide angle and stood in the doorway. This always gives a good general image of the room, then go close up on individual objects of interest.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I always liked to start with a picture of the outside or some main introduction feature, that shows what the rest of the thread may contain. Anyway, here is one of mine taken when the place was first explored last year.
