3 out of 4 explores with scrub.

This place has been closed since i've move down here.
Dont know why or when.

i've recced this site a couple of times and was all ways put off by its location, right next to the A38.
any one who has travelled or will travel down to Plymouth will see this place.

couple of months ago it got boarded up, bout a week later it there was graffiti over the pub and on the boards.
it was time to stop and find away in and way in we found.

this is the only site that me and scrub has done that has almost made us vomit, there is fridges and frezers of left over food that is rotting. i'm surprised it can't get up and walk around. the smell from the chest freezers made us gag. rotting food, flys and out of date beer. great :)

enjoy the pics.

LOL.
I love old pubs, but if I get round your way pub grub is off the menu. :sick:
Looks like an eviction, so I wouldnt clean up either. It looks like there wont be many 'pubs' left at all soon.
However, some of the explores on various sites show what dumps some of these places really are, and the scratters that run them.
If anybody knows a decent pub in North Leeds please let me know.

I think that's the first games console i've seen on here, in which case well found.

Who could leave such a thing behind :(

My parents have woven place mats just like the ones on the bar, & my Aunt & Unlce have chairs like the curved back ones.

Fridges & freezers should really be stored open & empty, if air & moisture gets trapped in it can really cause things to get unpleasent. My Gran found this when she left the fridge in her caravan & found it looking like somethinf from Alexander Flemming's lab.

It really does look like it was closed with no warning, I guess due to an eviction.

There's a pub near me where the landlord has nearly gone bankrupt (due to gamling debts, rather than a fall off in trade) but at least the pub is brewery owned so it will stay open.

That kitchen looks rotten though! :sick:

I met someone at this pub recently(purely as a meeting point, nowt to do with urbex) & had chance to have a wander around the outside. There is a sign up about the proposed plan to delmolish it sometime soon. So if anyone wants to take a gander - you better move fast!

Incidently, if anyone has that pic of a few of us stood around the bar could they PM me. Ta;)

I've been in a few disused hotels, but none with food left behind.:sick:

I wish I'd had a pop at these though, only a year out of date. :)
