    Hello, I've just recently joined up. I went along to Talgarth Asylum a few weeks back for a jaunt, and a friend who came along put me onto this site as he'd found it online before we went up there. Anyway, three of us got in there and had a good few hours exploration. It was the first time I've ever done anything like this and I had no idea that there was a whole subculture devoted to getting into derelict places to photograph them. We had a wicked time even if i did fall foul of a nail in my tyre as likely administered by the local 'man with the dogs.' Seems he's a bit famous for that sort of stuff. I'll post some photos once i get the hosting stuff down-pat. Looking forward to the next jaunt now. Got a few ideas floating around. This site is pretty inspiring.

    Phil

    Went there 3 times doing different photoshoots, got a puncture when driving there, got a puncture whilst getting out of there and then the valves on the other 2 tyres blew on the way home. No nails though.

    Welcome too the Forum Phil & thanks for taking the time to do an introduction (something that most fail to do these days :rolleyes: they just come on demanding info etc, & not wanting to contribute :turdtoo the Forum :()

    I think i"d be seeking my own revenge if my tyres got spiked, especially whilst parked on what i presume is a public road ?

    Look forward to the report :thumb

    No probs, good parenting I reckon! I just put up a report incidentally - for another site though (Cwm Coke Works). Will sort out the Talgarth one asap.
