    Got a race car and arranged to have a photo shoot at the colliery, had a friend down to take the main photos (I took some myself) and she is not a member but looks at this site.
    A little info on the place
    "Tower Colliery was the oldest continuously working deep-coal mine in the United Kingdom, and possibly the world, and the last mine of its kind to remain in the South Wales Valleys"
    It was open 1864 to 2008. British Coal closed Tower Colliery on 22 April 1994, On 3 January 1995 the Colliery re-opened under the ownership of the workforce. While the deep mine is closed, the open mine just down the road is still being worked."
    (There are still offices on site and is used most times of day)
