Penwyllt Inn
Pen-y-Cae, Swansea, Wales

Penwyllt was a small community of workers from the limestone quarries in the area of Craig-Y-Nos. It's hey-day was during the late 19th Century when it had a rail link (Neath and Brecon Railway), but went into decline as industry changed and population dwindled until the quarry closed in 1977. Most of the village was demolished in the 1980s.

The Penwyllt Inn was near to the railway, and was known locally as "Stump Inn". It closed in 1949, and is now used as private accomodation for cavers.
