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.

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.

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 Heritage Park Hotel is next to the Rhondda Heritage Park Mining Museum, the old site of the Lewis Merthyr coal mine. The Heritage Park Hotel is in a good location if you want to explore Cardiff or the South Wales valleys, it is only 20 minutes from the M4 motorway and under 30 minutes from the centre of Cardiff. When we stayed there many of the other guests were hikers touring the beautiful Welsh countryside, the hotel is also on the way to the Brecon Beacons National Park. ‘A Stay Heritage Park Hotel, Rhondda, Wales’ - Filmed June 2018 MORE UK AND TRAVEL VIDEOS & PLAYLISTS 🎥 Visiting the UK travel videos https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLvLoC9ZcTe_TikGGMYrIfRt39Mg7vC4fF 🎥 Staying in the UK travel videos https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLvLoC9ZcTe_TDfJ28OcGYrJe82eD2q4KB EQUIPMENT - Canon 80D, Rode VideoMicPro Travel Videos Added Weekly - Not All Vloggers Say ‘HiGuys!!!!!!’ Couples travel, hotels, flight reviews, city breaks, luxury travel and various other travel related stuff.

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.

Bargoed is a former mining town in the Rhymney Valley of South Wales. Its eminent personae include Alun Hodinott the composer, Professor Phil Williams the cosmologist & politician and Doris Hare the TV actress. The international Mozart tenor Stuart Burrows taught at the Junior Boys' school circa 1955 . This video is based on a poem by Andrew Dexter and set to music by David Keith Jones, both sons of the town. Its coal mine once had the largest tip in Europe and the local area was painted by A.S. Lowry.

(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.

he Nantgarw Pottery was a noted pottery, located in Nantgarw on the eastern bank of the Glamorganshire Canal, 8 miles (13 km) north of Cardiff in the River Taff valley, Glamorganshire, Wales. It closed in 1920, when cigarettes replaced clay pipes. Collections of this pottery can be seen at the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff, and the V&A Museum, South Kensington, London. Established in November 1813, when artist and potter William Billingsley and his son-in-law Samuel Walker, a skilled technician, rented "Nantgarw House" on the eastern bank of the Glamorganshire Canal, eight miles north of Cardiff in the Taff Valley, Glamorganshire, Wales, and set about building the kilns and ancillary equipment in its grounds, necessary to transform the building into a small porcelain pottery. Billingsley had been instrumental in the development of the porcelain recipe for Flight, Barr & Barr at Royal Worcester, he and Walker, had signed an agreement not to disclose their new porcelain recipe to a third party, but there was no clause preventing them from using that recipe themselves. They had left Worcester in secret and started the venture at Nantgarw with only £250 to invest in the project between them. By January 1814, the Quaker entrepreneur William Weston Young had already become the major share-holder in their venture, having invested £630 into the first production period at Nantgarw, as his diaries at the Glamorgan Record Office testify, where payments are recorded to a Mr "Bealey;" an alias Billingsley travelled under since leaving Royal Worcester.

Merry Christmas to all our YouTube family!!!! Thanks for all your support during the past couple of years, for being there for us with a lot of praise, good advice and for giving us the will to go on and to make ever better videos! This time we wanted to show you a bit of Cardiff, where we live, the capital of Wales, a small country, part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain. We love Christmas Markets and it was a pleasure to share this one with you!!!!! Half way through the video, you will see that there are no comments, you just hear Silent Night (we don't own the rights to this track) because music from the restaurant was audible in the street when we walked by and YT blocked the video from being watched anywhere in the world. Sad but true... I suppose that the restaurant had paid for the right to play that song.................................. and therefore for us to hear it? But, never mind.. .it is Christmas, time to be merry and we hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and an even better New Year!!!!

CWM COKE WORKS, BEDDAU – SOUTH WALES “Cwm coke works is a large site just north of Beddau in Rhondda Cynon Taf. Up until the mid 1800′s Beddau was a small collection of farmsteads at the conjunction of four crossroads. (Incidentally, Beddau, which means ‘graves’, may be a shortening of Croesheol y Beddau, ‘crossroads of the graves’, as it is marked on an ordnance survey map circa. 1833. Criminals were often hanged as crossroads as an example to others…). In the 1860′s coal pits were sunk around Beddau, and the town grew at a steady rate until 1909, which saw the opening of Cwm colliery. As the industry moved in, Beddau grew quickly, and in 1958 Cwm coke works opened, furthering the expansion. At its peak, Cwm colliery was producing hundreds of thousand of tons of high quality, low sulphur coal per year. Much of this was processed at Cwm coke works, into high-grade coke suitable for foundry use. The National Coal Board closed the colliery in 1986, and Cwm Coke works in 2002, leaving yet another small Welsh town deprived and forgotten.”

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.

Breaking News - Sir Tom Jones considers returning to Welsh domestic town Sir Tom Jones could return to his Welsh hometown 40 years after he fled to America as a tax exile.The 77-year-old moved to America some 43 years ago in 1974, on the advice of his accountant after the government raised tax for high earners to more than 90 per cent.But the legendary singer said he 'never really left' the town of Pontypridd, Glamorgan and says while it is 'early days,' he hasn't ruled out a return.Born Thomas Jones Woodward in Pontypridd, South Wales to a traditional coal-mining family, the singer transformed himself from a penniless miner's son into a £190million global superstar through records including Delilah and It's Not Unusual.But Sir Tom said he loved coming back to the UK and his roots in the Valleys, and keeps in touch with family in his home town.In 2014 he spent three months living in the Savoy Hotel in London while filming BBC One's singing contest The Voice, and then did a 45-date tour of America and Australia.Earlier this year he put his stunning mansion in Mulholland Estates, Beverly Hills on the market for £6.45 million.The five-bed home was bought by the singer in 1998 for just over £2.1million.In 2016 Sir Tom put his Grade II-listed mansion in East Sussex on the market.The six-bedroom Grade II-listed property in the village of Burwash, East Sussex, was once jointly owned by Sir Tom and Engelbert Humperdinck - and was put on the market for £4.75million.The pair, who bought Socknersh Manor together in the early Sixties, never moved into the property full-time, but instead they used it to throw lavish weekend parties.Sir Tom told James Desborough of the Daily Mirror: 'I'm still trying to decide to be honest with you, but the reason that I went, was because of the government situation at that time.'It was 1974 when things changed and I was doing a lot of shows in America.'My accountant advised me: 'I wouldn't come back at the moment if I were you.'Last year Sir Tom was left grief-stricken after the death of his childhood sweetheart and wife of 59 years, Linda, who lost her battle with terminal lung cancer.He fell in love with Linda when he was only eight years old, and used to meet her at the local shop or the red telephone box at the bottom of the hill of their Welsh town while out running errands for his mother.He pursued the petite blonde for years until she agreed to date him when she was 15, and liked to say the road always ran back to her.It was a case of opposites attracting: he was a local rough lad, in the D stream at school with undiagnosed dyslexia. The son of a coal miner, he dreamed of fame.She was bright, with a formidable work ethic and few expectations outside of South Glamorgan. But his talent took him far from the valleys — and far from her.Sir Tom was on tour when he discovered the devastating news that Linda had lung cancer and that it was terminal.She died shortly after in April 2016 at the age of 75.He said shortly after: 'I had to stop at that point and I didn't know whether I would be able to sing again because it hurt so much because we had been together since we were kids.'In September, Sir Tom Jones apologised to fans after being forced to postpone his 21-date US tour until next year on doctors' orders.The 77-year-old had been due to kick off his latest run of live concerts with a show in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania on September 6 and continue on the road through to October 7 with a final gig in Tulsa, Oklahoma.The music icon wrapped his multi-city UK and European tour at the start of August after performing 26 shows across 12 countries.However, in a statement to fans, the legendary singer said all US tour dates had been postponed until 2018.

Friday 3rd May saw the official opening of an insightful new exhibition at the Winding House in New Tredegar. 'Coalfaces: a mining community in photos -- Bargoed in the 1970s' features a series of remarkable and personal photographs taken in and around the Bargoed area in the 1970s by a young Swedish photographer, Kjell-Åke Andersson. Andersson has gone on to be a hugely successful film and TV director, most recently working on BBC4's Wallander. Joining the esteemed photographer at the launch were his daughter, who was only 7 months old when her family came to stay in Bargoed, and his grandson Bill. Also present were members of the family with whom Andersson stayed and some of the children featured in the photographs. These residents were able to give extra insight into the joys and hardships felt by the community at the time. Cllr Harry Andrews, Leader of Council who welcomed Andersson and his family said, "This exhibition gives due recognition to the quite incredible experience Mr Andersson had whilst in Bargoed. These photographs captured the Bargoed area just before the closure of the Bargoed Colliery and capture the unique experiences of this mining community. I'd like to thank Mr Andersson for donating these images to us so that both young and old can experience the remarkable sense of community." The exhibition opens on Saturday 4th May and will be on display until Spring 2014. The Winding House is open Tuesdays-Sundays, 10am-5pm and admission is free.
