Not seen this before David is it at the back of the school, as St David's School once part of the brewery wasn't it.

Thats correct Cyril ,its on private land behind Culraven garage and the school.A friend of mine works at the garage and we put a large nest box in the top window (photo) a few years ago but no luck yet.A few years ago the slate water troughs and the stalls for the dray horses were still intacted .thanks Cyril ,afraid so Alan.
