    After an unsuccessful morning at Brogyntyn Hall, JdotN15 and I were on our way to Talgarth to visit Mid Wales Hospital but after talking to another member, they suggested us to visit CWM coke works instead. Very good idea as we were not disappointed! Was such a huge site to visit, and would highly recommend it. Spent 3-4 hours in there until we saw police snooping around the gates however looking to revisit in the near future with some other nearby locations.

    A lil bit of history.
    Originally a coal mine with two shafts called Mildred and Margaret between 1914 up to 1948,when the NCB (National Coal Board) was formed.Between 1952 and 1960,there was a huge cash injection which saw the development of the Coke workings. By the turn of the 1970`s,the Coke plant employed some 1580 workers alone,and was producing 515,000 tonnes of Coke per year. It did this up to 1986 when the Works was bought by CPL Industries,who ceased the coal mining part of the site on 28th November 1986.At this time,a brochure stated that there was potentially 9 million tonnes of coal reserves still underground. Coke production continued up to 2002,when a decision was made to stop production due lack of re investment for new technologies.
