Didn't get inside anywhere :violin: so no point putting up a report of just externals but here's what i did manage to find

Port Soderick, back in the day it was a tourist spot "famed for its pleasure grounds and beach"

did find something else but there's no way of posting pics of it without showing access so will leave it, hopefully will get inside next time...

Not really 'urbex' but found this as well (sorry if it's not appropriate for the site but thought they were cool & may be of interest to others on here), an old local guy made loads of these quirky things out of junk/trash/stuff he found washed up on the beach & decorated his garden with them, most locals don't even know about the place. He made loads of them with cigarettes in their mouths in protest to the smoking ban even though he doesn't actually smoke.

      Brogyntyn Hall has stood abandoned for 15 years. was owned by the Lord Harlech until 2000. Settled in the 1600s the house and its estate once presided over the land as far as the eye can see. The family was one of the great English dynasties and owners of Harlech Castle in North Wales as well.
      Unfortunately a string of tragedies including two Lords Harlech dying without wills, leaving massive death duties to be paid, saw the decline of the family fortunes and subsequent sale of the Hall. Interestingly it was also used during the war by British Telecom as headquarters for communications for the spy network operating in Europe.

      Grain Dummy Fort was built and then rebuilt in 1905 the fort was prone to subsidence and there was many problems with the construction. the fort has a ditch full of water in front of it but there is no refernce of the fort ever being in use in eiter ww1 or 2 unfortunately theres been some form of arson or fire atack by chavs.
