Llynfi Valley Collieries

Caerau Colliery 1979.
The spare sheave wheel (in 2 halves) which can be seen in the courtyard here, were sent to St. John's Colliery when Caerau closed down but they were never used as St. John's closed down not long after. The sheave wheel was eventually donated to the South Wales Miners Museum by the National Coal Board and is now on display there. You can see a photo of the display here.
