Former LSD lab up for sale

Former LSD lab up for sale
Mar 20 2005
icnetwork.co.uk

IT WAS dubbed the house that launched a thousand trips - and now the world's biggest LSD lab in the 70s is up for sale.

The isolated location of the small cottage in Penllainau, Blaencaron, made it the perfect place for a couple to help organise the production of millions of pounds' worth of LSD.

The 1978 drugs bust on the small cottage in Ceredigion found enough LSD for 20-30 million LSD doses at today's levels.

As a result, more than a dozen gang members were jailed for up to 13 years.

The police investigation which eventually broke the gang was later made into a film - Operation Julie - and inspired a song by The Clash, Julie's Been Working For The Drug Squad.

The research scientist and his doctor lover at the centre of the gang lived in the small holding near Tregaron which is now on the market for ?285,000.

Gone are their two pet goats and vegetable patch as the current owners use the property to breed Irish wolfhounds.

The two-bedroom cottage is set in two acres of gardens and paddocks with six large purpose-built kennels, a garage workshop, studio and four-berth static caravan. It is in a quiet no-through road with no immediate neighbours.

Estate agent Martyn Buck, of The Smallholding Centre, is handling the sale of Penllainau.

"It was where the protagonists of the story lived and when the police carried out the raid they found money and drug-making equipment there,' he said.

"It is a lovely property with a really interesting history. People around here still remember it, I met a policeman involved in Operation Julie the other day. At the end of the day it was the biggest drugs raid of the 70s.

"I would think such an intriguing story would interest a lot of people. By the very nature of its use back in the 1970s, you would guess it's a fabulous setting and it is.

"It is up in the hills which are gorgeous. The house is very peaceful and all on its own - which is exactly why the gang were using it."

I have never heard of that movie, but it sounds interesting. Anyone knows if it's worth looking up?

Pounds as in money, not weight.
