Mysterious Places Around The World #10. The Skirrid Mountain Inn – Wales
Place between the rising fells and lichen-spotted rock villages around the eastern edge of the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park (Wales’ lesser-known, a southern mountain range), The Skirrid Mountain Inn oozes with tales and stories of the Gaelic country’s past.
Some say that it was the gathering point of rebel fighters under the banner of Owain Glyndŵr, the hero of Welsh resistance against Henry IV. Others claim that it was a courthouse where offenders were not only condemned to death but also hung, all under the control of the infamous so-called Hanging Judge, George Jeffreys.
There is a swinging noose still dangling from the rafters indoors, and oodles of ghost tales to listen to over your cawl (conventional Welsh soup)!
