Ruined chalets at the old Greystones Motel on the A40
"Hotel, motel, Holiday Inn" as the Sugar Hill Gang had it in their ground breaking rap of my youth, but this place has seen better days. I cannot recall another proper 'US style' motel in South Wales, so this place was ground breaking and must have been the work of a visionary business man, who was probably very limited by planners or other factors and had to develop his scheme here, in the middle of nowhere rather than on the outskirts of an established tourist centre, like Brecon. Ten or so chalets sit very sadly behind the filling station.
