Now and Then, Griffin Inn, Hendreforgan

The Griffin Inn, originally the Griffin Hotel, Hendreforgan is an isolated former Rhymney Brewery pub that has been in the hands of the same family since 1961, shortly after the above photo was taken. Its remote location is due to the existence of an exploratory coal shaft close by, as well as the railway running through the valley, so the coal board applied for a license on a building they owned. Although the exterior has changed, the interior still has nineteenth century fittings and the pub is listed on the CAMRA Historic Pub Interior database
