This building has been derelict for a few years now. It was first made empty by Morgan Vinci Corporation; they got Newport City Council to put a CPO on the building because they were building the southern distributor road through Newport.

Since then the building has remained empty and The Tesco group has bought the building and surrounding land, which also has a Texaco garage a No Frills shop, and a garage.

These are all derelict now. There is a good story about the garage, that when all the other buildings were CPO they couldn’t find the owner of the garage, and then found out that he had died and no living relatives. They opened the garage up to find 11 pristine condition TVR cars in there. Since then they have been sold on.

The actual institute itself was built buy the money that was donated by the worker of the Orb steel works adjacent to the institute. Then the club would be there club and for the remainder of they’re lives they would receive subsidised drink and other.

I will apologise for the quality of my photos, these days they are just a personal reminder for me of the places I been to, its the history and the location that makes me smile.

Small lift, presumable to take crates of beer up from the downstairs to the upstairs bar.
