Summerhouse Bay Christian Conference Centre
Summerhouse Bay Christian Conference Centre
With Aberthaw power station in the background, this picture was taken in mid 1988 while staying at the conference centre. Subsequent visits having seen the location in more states approaching dereliction (even with ropes and props holding together the main building which was alreay condemned and unuseable in my final visit around 1991). The buildings are mostly still there today all be it in a state of ruin and dereliction as seen in SS9966 : Derelict building at Penry Bay..

The twin chimney power station building (Aberthaw A) in the background was soon demolished after closure in 1995, leaving Aberthaw B.
