The concern about the Greyhound Tavern
The Greyhound Tavern - one of the most popular pubs in Neath. Surprisingly this is not a listed building because of the alterations made over the years and is scheduled to be demolished with the town's development plan.
Keith Reed, local historian, states that the East Gate was on or near this site, which was demolished around 1843 after being on the spot since the 14th century.
Below is a photograph taken outside the building in June 1953, the time of the Queen's coronation. Note the stonework of the building at that time.
Objections to the demolishment should be sent to the NPT CBC Planning Department by 15th October 2013.
