This building was not always a pub, it has a history of being a mortuary and other uses. There are many stories emanating from the pub, whilst some ghost tales have been disputed, there are definitely some spirits there!
Classy and elegant hats.
Take a walk down the Main Street of Blackwood. You can find the Merchant Cafe just opposite the pub if you care to relax with a coffee afterwards. There is a Post Office which offers giftware and other items for you to browse.
Also, there is a classic hat shop. If hats are your thing, this shop is a must. There is an antique shop and bookshop down the driveway of one of the houses near the Blackwood Pub. Blackwood is home to The Garden of St Erth. A day in this historic Hamlet is a worthy visit.
