360° VR – Williamson’s Tunnels

360° VR – Williamson’s Tunnels

Williamson’s Tunnels

I become fascinated with 360°, Virtual Reality Equirectangular Images. So started to dabble with the process of creating these amazing 360° VR Panoramas myself.

The following 360° images were created using multiple Hi-Res images from either the Nikon D800 or D850 fitted with a Nikon Nikkor 8-15mm Fisheye lens and a Manfrotto 055 Pro tripod with MH057A5 3D head + L Bracket.


Wine Bins

This view is from just inside the entrance to the Wine Bins, with the lovely elliptical arch clearly visible.
This view is from the steps underneath the Bishops Mitre arch, looking over the wall into the cistern chamber and back towards the entrance.

Sandstone Arch & Gash

The Top of the Gash, leading down from the Sandstone Arch, continuing down the Gash into the bowls of the Banqueting Hall.
A view looking back towards the Sandstone Arch and down into the entrance of the Gash, which leads down further into the Banqueting Hall

Banqueting Hall

This is a view inside the Banqueting Hall, with the main chamber at one end, the trench visible and the Gash slopping down into the trench.
This view is taken from within the trench, looking up the Gash at one end, then around to show the Rock Cut arch cut into the wall of the Banqueting Hall. This we think will lead us into the Great Tunnel in the future.

New Chamber, along side the Banqueting Hall

This view is taken from the bottom of the trench, and within the small Rock Cut Tunnel entrance. with view bak into the Banqueting hall and the New Chamber.
