UK St David's Hotel Harlech - Wales - May 2017

Recommended Posts

After trekking 13 floors in the dorms next door we switched over to this grand hotel, a notice on the door said the hotel had been resealed in February and it all looked pretty secure but on further inspection there was a way in. I was expecting the inside to be a lot worse than it was, bad as it was most areas had good joists still!

 

Built in 1910, and an extensive rebuild in 1922 after being gutted by fire. 5 storeys and a basement with a function room. 60 bedrooms and apparently a swimming pool that we clearly couldn't see as it was so overgrown! Closed in 2008 and has been subject to planned renovations and demolition regularly over the years but nothing has happened yet much to the dismay of the locals.

Sad state, but some nice decay. I especially like pic #4 with the plants inside.

      I have no info about this camp in the wood near Coed Trefaith

      Anzio Camp
       
      The Anzio Camp is situated near Leek in Staffordshire.
      The camp was first used by the US Army in 1943, to house troops.

      In 1945/6 the camp was taken over by Polish troops.
      After the war it was used as a civilian settlement by the Poles until 1963/4 when they were moved to a purpose built site half a mile north of the camp
      I cannot find much information on what the camp was used for between 1963 and the early 80's.
      In 1980 the MOD took over the site and it was used as a training camp for Regular and Territorial Army troops and also scouts and cadets.
      The camp closed in 2004 as it was deemed surplus to requirements by the MOD

      It was bought in 2006 by care operator John Munroe Hospital, of Rudyard, with a view to developing a care home.
      But the site was again sold, in July 2007, to a consortium of Courtyard Property Group and Smartwright Developments.
      Planning officers recommended that the planning application is refused on the grounds that the site lies within open countryside on the fringe of the Peak District National Park, which is designated as a Special Landscape Area.
      In 2010 the site was sold again to an Air soft company called first and Only.

      Kwik Save is a British discount supermarket chain that was founded in Wales. It had shops across the United Kingdom. It went into administration in July 2007, but was brought back in April 2012. Its shops were small to medium sized high street supermarkets, mainly located in areas with below average incomes.
      It struggled to make profits during the 2000s, as superstore operators such as Asda, Tesco and Sainsbury's introduced their own budget brands, and foreign discounters such as Lidl, Aldi and Netto (who all arrived in the United Kingdom during the first half of the 1990s) expanded.[1]
      The company was listed on the London Stock Exchange, and was once a constituent of the FTSE 100 Index. It went into administration on 6 July 2007, and closed most of its shops across the United Kingdom, with the remaining 56 being sold to a new company, FreshXpress, which itself went into administration in March 2008.[2]
      It was then resurrected in a smaller form with nine shops, but this second incarnation of FreshXpress went into administration, and ceased trading in 2009. All remaining shops have since been closed.[3] In 2012, the brand was relaunched as a budget fascia for convenience shops supplied by Costcutter.[4][5]

      I know this has been on the radar for a while now but for whatever reason i'd not got around to perusing it for myself. After a day of no sleep and totally battered i should have perhaps kept it on the back burner too. However, what a rather delightful and quaint little place it is, although i did notice that the good lord had not prevented people going through the floor boards. 
      I figure the history of this place is well documented. Condensed version is that it served the Roman Catholic section of the local community since the 1930's till its closure, i'm really pleased i eventually took time out for it. 
       
      Thankfully my friend is fully qualified and absolved me of my past sins , well, the ones i admit to

      Explored with my partner, who told me about this place, was completely unaware that i was passing it on the bus every day until she told me about it... Wasn't really expecting it to be that good but really enjoyed it. Didn't look like we were going to find a way in at first but i found what i thought was a pretty cool access point, even if it was a bit cobweby 

       

       

       

       
      Not sure exactly when it closed but they closed due to being an awful place to leave your dog, they sound pretty bad and from what I've heard i wouldn't leave a dog with them. Here is a 'review' from 2008;
      "We have used the one at Greeba a few years back and I decided not to return when, on collection, our Lab jumped into the boot of the car with such force that he, literally, bounced back out again. I also read in the paper not long after that they had lost a dog and some kind of hearing resulted. I can't remember if they had their licence revoked or had been fined, but they stopped taking boarders after that."
