My wife is Welsh and has a deep association with the Welsh mining community and it was essential that we visit here and pay our respects.
A very very emotional experience.
Hard to locate, well worth the time and effort.

We made a visit to Senghenydd were the pit exploasion killed a lot of young boys and men, it is not a sombre place, but well worth a visit, you can see the memorial to all the men that were killed

This is a sad place made sadder by the fact that it should be far bigger and more respected by the authorities. Considering the massive loss of life and the devastation it caused to those left behind one would rightfully assume that the nation would grant this place far more importance. The museum is small but the volunteer staff are fantastic. Knowledgeable and caring. A friendly welcome and a free film made by the people there gives you a true feeling of the dedication all there have to this milestone in industrial history. Online you can find another film made by the Aber Valley Heritage group. I honestly believe that if the government wasn't so anti miner the site would have the sort of investment that seems to go all too often to 'Royal' heritage sites. All the people of Wales should be proud of this place as should Great Britain. Remember, here you are walking over the remains of the 33 men they couldn't recover. The green is returning to the valleys but these hills have black bones.
