Hello All,

Well this is my first post on here so I hope it meets your high standards. Will probably be a few errors but all a learning curve. Im only using a digital camera havent got one of those smart ones yet unfortunately so hope the quality is ok for you.

We explored a little hotel in Clydach, near Abergavenny (On the Black MOuntains) called 'The Rock and Fountain'. It's a decent size but part of it has been set on fire so there is no roof or floor etc. The rest is in pretty good nick. Well as pretty good as an abondened pub could be I suppose!

Havent got much history on this place unfortuantely. But I have found out the reason why it closed is because the owners relocated to a pub called 'The Drum and Monkey' which funnily enough is only a short distance up the road.

Not sure when this place opened but I know it has been derelict now for a very long time. Well worth a look around to anyone that is in the area though.

Now for the pics, please let me know what you think guys

Im assuming this is where the pikies had their fun with the copper pipes!!

Shower! Probably the only thing untouched as there was no floor apart from the shower block

Alot of the guest rooms were affected by the fire and the floor is either gone or very dodgy !!

Old thread, but good effort for getting out there. Its clearly been wrecked by fire and i'm not sure I would venture in there.
