Journal entries containing Lewis Merthyr Colliery

This colliery comprised the Coedcae, Hafod, Bertie, Trevor and lastly the Lady Lewis Pit. The Coedcae, Bertie and Trevor were on the south side of the River Rhondda with the two Hafod pits being on the north side of the Rhondda river. A 300 feet long bridge linked the two parts of the colliery. In July 1989 the site opened at the Rhondda Heritage Park following major restoration of the pithead buildings and is now a living testament to the mining communities of the world famous Rhondda Valleys and offers a fascinating insight into the rich culture and character of the Valleys.
