    As @WhoDaresWins recently did a report on this beautiful derelict monument to Welsh mining, I'll keep it brief and post images from area's they didn't get to. I've been waiting for the right day to go up here for a long time and today just happened to be that day!

    After an initial "eek" at the caravans and running generator, we ventured in and had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon exploring. Even rocked out the 360° camera

    Great 360 tour, is that a Ricoh Theta camera? The one shot 360 cameras are getting better and much easier than 10 picture stitching that I normally use. Using the new youtube hosting is great too.

    the floor in the main room is starting to sag in the middle and fair few cracks forming, the wife didn't want to walk on it as she's witnessed a concrete floor go before but I wanted to get to the bath house! We nearly bailed earlier than you guys did as heard a vehicle pull up, left it 10 minutes and ventured back in.

    Yeah the theta S. Best application i've used it so far is wrestling, but it does provide a handy look around for abandoned places. I would do video rec, but having me in shot would spoil it in my opinion.

    Oh I took much more, but like I said @WhoDaresWins did a report only the other day, but bugged out due to a van turning up. So I didn't want to waste time with another report and just posted up a few angles/areas that weren't covered

    By all means post up your other shots of the place. I certainly wouldn't be offended ;)

    There was a sauna here, back in the glory days. My pit boots came from Tower...
