    Guess this one may have been mentioned before as it's a pub & it's been vacant for a few years now? Located in Poole.
    The Mothership actually said about it last night, it's fairly close to Fleetsbridge etc, visible from the road. Anyone got any further info?

    So what we need is someone that knows where it is, lives in Dorset, and is interested in exploring.

    Anyone know anyone that might fit the bill?

    Yes it's empty but they live up stairs still don't think they would like you looking around

    Yep, drove past in the week and the lights were on upstairs. I suspect you'd be greeted with open arms ;) lol

    I live just up the road from Darby's corner, its an abandoned pub that has been empty for roughly 6 months. There's a metal fence around it but it has a really small gate and there is an entrance around the back, one of the boards has been taken down. I haven't actually been in there because of the number of squatters i have heard are in there. Anyway, it is on the roundabout as you turn away from broadstone to fleetsbridge or parkstone grammar school, try typing this into your search bar and see if it comes up. Hope i can be of some help!

    Last time I took an interest in an empty pub in this area I spent the rest of the night in Bournemouth Police Station.

    I prefer pubs that are open, there is rarely anything special inside such places (despite sometimes being in historic buildings).

    Seriously it's a pub ! It's a dump hence why it closed. Don't waste your time ! Unless there's some secret bunker underneath it full of epicness ???

    The pub is in the process of refurb. Rumour has it that it is opening as a vet/cafe. Will update as it progresses.
