A photograph of the Robin Hood Inn Pontypool

A DISTANT VIEW OF THE ROBIN HOOD


The Robin Hood Inn

For some time past there has been a lot of interest shown in the Robin Hood Inn. Some viewers have visited it and even lived there. Others have had relatives who were the landlords at one time.

I have recently received a photograph of the Robin Hood from Brian Walker. He tells me that it was taken possibly in the late sixties from the bridge  where the old Talywain line crossed the Cwmnantddu line.

It’s rather a distant view but, at least, it’s still standing and presumably in use. If anyone has any more photographs of the Robin Hood when it was still in use please email them to me as enclosures and I’ll put them in a future blog post.
