    Report - Tower Colliery, Hirwuan, Dec 22 - Sep 23

    This has been in the works for a while, as Rhigos Mountain absolutely hates me, and has scuppered my plans to climb/drone the Headframe four times. But I persevered and managed to do everything except the Pit Head Baths, as that remains well sealed, and drone shots STILL. It has of course been...

    Report - Penallta Colliery, South Wales - August 2022

    Introduction I visited this and some other places on a short exploring trip around South Wales in summer last year.

    Introduction This is one of a few places that myself and @V50jake visited on our trip to Wales at the beginning of May. I’ve driven past this a few times before not paying much attention to it as it looked like an old farm building or derpy house, but we decided to take a closer look and as it...

    Report - Deep Mine Headstocks, Part 2, Wales & Cornwall, Various Locations, 2022-23

    Here's part two of the remaining headframes in the country. Other than Chatterley Whitfield, the South Wales Coalfield definitely has the best remaining colliery infrastructure I would say. The amount left in Cornwall was rather surprising, made for a decent day out though! Be a while until part...

    Report - Penallta Colliery, Hengoed, South Wales, March/April 2022

    Haven't seen this posted in a little while, and Penallta is definitely one of the favourite colliery explores I have done, so why not! Not sure how much longer it'll remain though, 2 of the smaller buildings have already been converted into housing, and I believe similar is planned for the...
