Description
Gilfach Goch Workmen's Hall opened in 1924 and provided facilities broadly typical of miners' institutes in this period including a cinema (capacity 556 seats) providing films and variety performances. With the closure of the local colliery in 1960, he institute suffered and was eventually demolished in the 1980s. Today, the site is occupied by modern housing.
