I visited here with Lavino, I spotted it as we were walking by it and said we should go in and have a look at it. So once we got to the access point it stunk a bit and it was pitch black so I thought the place wasn't going to be too good, but when I turned around and turned on my torch I saw a bar full of bottles and un smashed glasses. Also there were quite a few stool's and tables dotted around also books all around on the floor for some strange reason. Next we moved onto the upper floor it was a bit brighter as it had windows but it still wasn't that much light, but the great thing about the upper floor is it had 2 glass domes which looked amazing ( one was taken into pieces and placed on the floor ) and there was another another bar which was also in ok condition. And then we moved onto a next set of staircases but this one was the living quarters of the owners and this was the only floor which didn't look too good as it had plants growing in one room and it also had a striped carpet plus a big steel safe lying on its side. Anyway here is a bit of history and some pics from my visit hope you enjoy :D .

The has no real certain future but it is owned by a company named PJM Trading Ltd which has long since gone out of business. The pub was built in the 19th century. During the later half of the century traveling dentists would go to the rear of the pub and extract peoples teeth, they would also have a brass band playing to drown out all of the screams. The pub was put into the hands of local brewers in the early 20th century. The place has now been shut since 2007 ( and it seems not many people have been in it since the 8 year shut down ).

Great report and pics. That's a proper result finding that it wasn't trashed inside

Ahh the good old days of brass bands drowning out the sound of screaming lol :-D

Well done on spotting and getting in the place as clearly some nice shots to be had.

I think we were just lucky with this one someone went the day after us and it was sealed up tight again.
