Bargoed Colliery Old Photos

I must agree that a picture of a site office is very boring so to keep us going for a bit longer here are a few more old photos of the Bargoed Colliery

Starting with the oldest first

Here is a photo of the newly built Power House. From this the colliery was able to generate all their own energy needs. The waste tip was still very small here and much in use as you can see the conveyer taking the waste to the top of the tip.

The top photo shows the tip after it was closed but before any trees were planted on it.
