Pant-y-Waun, Merthyr Tydfil. Not only has the pub disappeared but the entire village of Pant-y-waun has gone as well as the whole village became an open-cast mine, the Royal Arms Opencast in the 1960s, now filled in and the area landscaped with a new road cutting the site of the pub.
Below: Side by side comparison of the 1888 map showing Pont-y-waun and the modern satellite image with the crosshairs marking the position of the former pub.

The former Rising Sun PH, High Street, Cefn Coed-y-Cymmer, Merthyr Tydfil. Another long lost Rhymney Brewery pub, this pub was demolished in 1962.
Thirsty ex-patrons of the pub did not have to go far for another drink though as opposite is the Lord Raglan pub which in the late 1990s briefly experimented with brewing their own beer (it wasn't very good!)

The pub was named after Ivor Churchill Guest, Lord Wimborne, grandson of Sir JJ Guest, owner of the original Dowlais Works in Merthyr Tydfil
