ABANDONED 20TH CENTURY PENALLTA COLLIERY SOUTH WALES
 
10:53
Come check out this abandoned Colliery in South Wales and the Number 2 up shaft with me CollidingPlanets. Music by PLUG N PLAY https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTizabIZiASXACr9B0RxeZA The Powell Duffryn Steam Coal Company maintained ownership of Penallta colliery until Nationalisation in 1947. The two shafts of Penallta colliery were sunk by the Powell Duffryn Steam Coal Company in 1905/6. The first coal was raised in 1909 from the upper six feet seam and subsequently from the lower nine and seven feet seams. The number 1 shaft (downcast) and number 2 shaft (upcast) were 783 and 750 yards deep respectively. These shafts were subsequently extended to reach 800 yards in 1960 making it the last deep mine working in the Rhymney Valley. Penallta colliery was maintained as one of the most advanced collieries using up-to-date coal cutting machinery. 1930 saw the production of 975,603 tons of coal and the European record for coal recovered in 1935. In the late 1940's one of the first power loaders to be used in British mines, the Meco-Moore Cutter Loader, was installed which helped produce the 500,000 tons of coal raised in 1954. The 1960 shaft extension scheme included electrification of the shaft winding engines. In the mid 1970's 700 men were producing 210,000 tons of coal yearly. The 291 men employed in 1908 soon swelled to 1,920 in 1909. 1913 saw a slight reduction in the workforce to 1,281 men but in 1923, 2,395 men were employed which subsequently peaked at 3,208 men in 1931. 1947 saw a reduction to 1,934 men which reduced down to a mere 700 men in the 1970’s. Post 1984/85 The miners marched back to the Penallta Colliery behind their lodge banner making an impressive return to work following the end of the strike. Thirty two collieries were working in the South Wales coalfield following the 1984/85 miners strike. About a third of the remaining collieries in South Wales were then closed within a year of the end of the strike, the rest following shortly afterwards. Penallta was one of the few pits in the coalfield that was chosen to undergo a programme of modernisation, with £3.5m being invested in rapid coal-winding skips and a new heavy-duty high-technology coalface. In 1986 a major fire caused the closure of a coal face. Closure Penallta colliery was scheduled for closure by the British Coal Corporation (the statutory successor to the NCB) in November 1990. Despite this, by March 1991 the highest-ever productivity rate of 590,000 tonnes per annum of coal was being produced at Penallta. A brass band led the last shift of miners leaving Penallta colliery on Friday 1st November 1991. This marked the closure of the last deep mine working in the Rhymney Valley.
South Wales Valleys, 1950's.  Archive film 92686
 
06:55
A day in the life of a valley town in Wales in the 1950's. The terraces of miner's cottages crammed into and along the valleys. Camera tracks along rows of back-to-back valleys streets. A huge detached chapel stand towering in the middle of one street. A young couple shot from behind walk down town steps. At the bottom they turn into a street and catch a single-decker bus. The bus driver is shot at work. Close-up: He is bespectacled and wears a smart peaked cap. A sequence of shots from the viewpoint of his cap shows narrow, tight streets and corners. The bus then leaves from town uphill. Another (double-decker) bus steers round tight bends as it climbs down the hill. It is seen on the crown of the hill, then descends into another valley town with tight streets. Here a terrace of houses rises in steps in typical Welsh valley style. A phlegmatic bus passenger smokes a pipe in the double-decker bus as it too winds into town. Then it crosses a railway with a goods train passing on a viaduct above and behind it (lovely shot). A group of passengers in cloth caps includes a man lighting a cigarette. Miners traipse into a colliery off the bus. Traffic passes along an arterial road with modern factories. Inside the factory people walk past machinery, then part to start the day's work. Outside again, a young man in coat and carrying a briefcase hurries along a village street. A class at Technical College. A quick sequence now shows others starting the working day: A miner collects his lamp from a long row; woman sits down at a working bench in the factory; man hurries breathless across another village street; man in overalls greets his female assistant and takes a working panel from her; miners in a group leave the lamp room for the winding cage; manruns through a pleasant garden and up the front steps of an old mansion, now the Technical College; indoors he enters a classroom and sits at his desk; a middle-aged teacher lectures on the structure of coalfields while man takes out his pen and opens a notebook. The lecturers hand points at a diagram of the 'Gellygaer Basin' on the blackboard; in the colliery the cage packed with men drops and disappears down the pit; then the wheels at the top of the winding mechanism once seen spinning. Men at benches in a workshop; a man working with a retort and Bunsen burner (or similar); men in overalls working on propellers and an enormous aero-engine; spinning machinery in a textile factory; brad baking; a man laying out freshly cleaned gloves at a dry cleaners; seamstresses at work and women packing gloves; a sort of cutting machine; engines and trucks at a major (possibly chemical?) works; woman working on electrical circuits and man entering data on his panel.

The Lost Village Of Pwlldu
 
05:27
The Lost Village Of Pwlldu In 1963 the small hamlet of Pwlldu, near Blaenavon, was demolished. Originally a mining community, the mines had long since closed, and houses had fallen into a dilapidated state of repair, with no access to either running water or a sewerage system. The council took the decision to move residents down the valley to another village. Interviews with residents, one who had lived in the hamlet for over 70 years, show that even though conditions were harsh, not all wanted to leave. The foundations of the houses can still be seen, and The Lamb Inn seen in the film is still open today. An interesting feature of Pwlldu is the 'Pwlldu Tunnel' which runs from Pwlldu to Blaenavon through the hillside. The tunnel was originally created in the late 18th Century and was one of a number of mines supplying iron and coal to Blaenavon Ironworks. In later years it was used as a tramroad tunnel. Story has it that the ladies of Pwlldu used to walk through the tunnel to do their shopping in Blaenavon! Some parts of this clip are mute. Pentref Coll Pwlldu Fe ddymchwelyd pentref Pwlldu, ger Blaenafon yn 1963. Erbyn hynny roedd y cyn bentref glofal wedi dirywio tipyn, doedd yno er enghraifft ddim system ddwr na charffosiaeth.

Un nodwedd ddiddorol o hanes y pentref yw 'Twnel Pwlldu' sy'n rhedeg drwy grombil y mynydd o Pwlldu i Flaenafon. Adeiladwyd y twnel yn y Ddeunawfed Ganrif er mwyn cario glo i'r ffwrneisi haearn a chynyrch haearn lawr at y gamles.

Valleys of South Wales Part 1
 
09:57
View this video and take a journey of discovery. You may already have a picture in your mind of what the world famous Welsh Valleys are all about. It probably needs an update. We'd like to introduce you to the Valleys of today and spring a few surprises along the way. For a start you won't see a coal mine (unless it happens to be a museum). What you will see are lakes and forests, open hillsides and green mountains. They're all part of a unique, roller-coaster landscape of hills and vales dotted with friendly towns and villages. But don't take our word for it. Listen to Nicole Cooke, Olympic and World Champion cycling star, who loves climbing the Valleys' scenic mountain roads as much as the Alps of Italy or France. Or the Rogh Guide, a travel publication renowned for its honesty and accuracy, gives the Valleys a top star rating and describes the destinations as 'interesting and distinctive'.

The Clydach Murders - "A Continuation of Violence"
 
23:52
In my latest review, I change tack slightly to analyse the book - The Clydach Murders: A Miscarriage of Justice, and explore the events surrounding the notorious crimes. In 1999, not far from where I live, three generations of one family were brutally murdered in a single night. Despite the trial and conviction of David George Morris as the man responsible for the crimes, rumour and doubt continue to circulate that others may have been involved. This book by John Morris (no relation) explores the evidence and theorises whether a conspiracy was enacted by those who are sworn to protect us.

Wales voted "Leave" despite relying on EU funds
 
05:56
(1 Jul 2016) It's been 25 years since the Penallta Colliery fell silent: the river once black with soot is now green and nature has taken back its place in this valley in South Wales. Eddie Cullen grew-up here in a family of miners and remembers the decline of the town and the sorrow at seeing the heart of his community torn away. "Everyone was frightened when the pit shut," he says. With dire poverty and high unemployment rates, South Wales has benefited from generous grants and financing schemes from the European Union to rejuvenate the area's economy. Yet on 23 June - the day of the UK referendum - the region voted massively to leave the EU. The modern highway connecting Brynmawr with other former coal-mining towns in the Valleys region of South Wales was partly funded by the European Union, replacing a three-lane road known for its many deadly accidents. In Abbw Vale, where 62 percent voted out, EU funds have also been used to improve railway lines, open museums, schools and training centres built where the steel works once stood. Paul Thomas, who voted 'remain', worries Brexit could jeopardise these achievements. "There was going to be more development but we don't know what's going to happen now," he says. But back in the old city centre retired truck driver John Thompson doesn't agree, saying that "there's been no benefit to this area at all" "Leave" campaigners say many of the EU projects are gimmicky and haven't led to any tangible improvements for people. Also, they consider the EU money as British money to begin with, since overall Britain contributes more money than it gets back from the EU. Welsh Conservative leader Andrew RT Davies, was one politician to go against the party's UK leader, Prime Minister David Cameron, and vote for Britain to quit the EU Davies used the metaphor of an out-of-control car to describe the EU, saying that people used the referendum to effectively say "I want to get out, the way this car is driven, we're going to hit a brick wall." But for one Welsh company, Brexit was the brick wall. In Pontypridd, a town climbing up misty hillsides north of Cardiff, Jenny Hughes said her education consultancy firm lost three potential contracts the day after the referendum as European partners pulled out. Even though Wales receives hundreds of millions of pounds annually in EU funding, more than half of the Welsh electorate voted for Britain to leave the EU. Puzzling many analysts, the "leave" vote was strongest in deprived post-industrial areas that have arguably benefited the most from EU support. "Wales might have shot itself in the foot," says Ed Poole, lecturer in politics at Cardiff University, explaining that Wales has been one of the biggest net beneficiaries of being in the European Union. A study he co-authored before the vote estimated that Wales receives a net annual benefit of 245 million (British) pounds (327 million US dollars) from the EU budget, or about 79 pounds (105 US dollars) per head. That compares with a net contribution of 151 pounds (201 US dollars) per head for all of the United Kingdom. It's possible, Poole says, that some voters didn't fully understand the role of EU funds in supporting their communities - or chose to ignore it.

Three Castles Walk - 22 Miles

Three Castles Walk - 22 Miles Join Nick and I for a 22 mile walk in the beautiful Welsh Countryside starting from Skenfrith, Monmouthshire close to the Wales/England border, on to the beautiful village of Grosmont for a look around Grosmont Castle before climbing to the trigg on top of Graig Syfyrddin also known as Edward's Tump that has an elevation of 423 metres. We enjoy lunch from the woodland edge just off Graig Syfyrddin enjoying views to the the west of the Skirrid and the Sugar Loaf as it emerges from the mist and cloud. We then march on toward White Castle at Llantilio Crossenny and have a walk around the beautiful church of St. Mary at Llanfair Cilgoed before reaching White Castle otherwise known as Llantilio Castle our second Norman Castle of the day at Llantilio Crossenny. The walk then took us to Skenfrith Castle and our third and final Norman Castle of the day and 22 miles completed which was a little longer than we expected due to footpath diversions between White Castle and Skenfrith. A great walk covering a lot of ground with a wealth of natural beauty, human interaction with the landscape and three once mighty Norman Castles that helped shape the societies and culture of Briton since the Norman Conquest of 1066. Access to the three castles was free. Well done and thank you CADW! The three Castles are managed by CADW which is the Welsh Government's historic environment service working for an accessible and well-protected historic environment for Wales.

Coalface by Dani Thomas (Part 2)
 
07:32
Dani Thomas has produced this haunting musical piece inspired by the coal mines of Wales. Dani recommends listening with headphones for the best effect. This piece was created primarily from sounds I collected from the 'Big Pit' Heritage Site in Blaenavon. My intention was to appeal to the listener's most primal reactions and evoke the raw power of industrial noise, but also to instill the work with a feeling of mounting human spirit and mass movement that is initially suppressed but ultimately allowed to break forth. With thanks to the Big Pit Coal Museum, Blaenavon Heritage Site and The Blaenavon Male Voice Choir. Brass Players:- Trumpet- Ali Kidd Horn- Simon Jones Trombone- Gareth Robinson Tuba- Rob Graham White http://communiststudents.org.uk/?p=1742

Ronald Lawrence in Conversation with Ceri Thomas (Part 2/2)
 
31:11
This video is a sample from a collection entitled ‘Visual Culture of South Wales since 1910’, which is available from South Wales on iTunes U. DOWNLOAD ‘VISUAL CULTURE OF SOUTH WALES SINCE 1910’ FREE from USW on iTunes U: http://bit.ly/USWVisCul The collection also includes: • Ronald Lawrence in Conversation with Ceri Thomas (Part 1/2) • Pop Go the Valleys --------------------------- Ronald Lawrence: a retrospective — 60 years of exhibiting since 1953 Artist Ronald Lawrence talks with curator Ceri Thomas before an audience of MA Arts Practice and MA Arts, Health and Wellbeing students and staff in his retrospective exhibition at Oriel y Bont. Lawrence was chosen as the feature artist at the University of Glamorgan’s art gallery in 2013 not only to celebrate his 60-year career as an artist (and 30-year career as an art educator) in South Wales but also to mark the institution’s transformation into the University of South Wales. He was born close to the gallery in Hopkinstown, Pontypridd, in 1929 and has lived and worked in the area all his life. He works in many media (including painting, sculpture and photography) and many styles, and he has exhibited widely in England and Wales. However, this was his first exhibition at the university, and it was the first time that a comprehensive range of his ever-changing work produced from all periods of his life had been brought together in a public place. In Part 1, Lawrence and Thomas talk in the main gallery space and set the scene. They look at specific paintings and sculptures, styles and techniques dating from 1953 to 2012. In Part 2, Lawrence and Thomas talk in the side gallery space about photography, art education, Matisse, Ivor Cutler, Leslie Moore, guitars, improvisation and more. Additional notes: • Ceri Thomas is the Art Curator for the University of South Wales • Oriel y Bont (gallery) is on the University’s Treforest Campus • The exhibition was displayed from 11 March to 3 May 2013 • The University of South Wales was formed in April 2013 following the merger of the University of Glamorgan and the University of Wales, Newport.
