A former Gwent day care centre which was forced to close its doors due to the pandemic is set for a new life after being bought at auction.

Pendragon, Oak Street, Abertillery, in a prominent location in the town, sold for £135,000. The property was listed by Newport-based Paul Fosh Auctions with a guide price of £130,000-plus.

Debra Bisley, of Paul Fosh Auctions, said: “Pendragon, a three storey, semi-detached property with basement, was most recently used as a day care centre but ceased operating during the pandemic.
