This Project is to restore one of the finest groups of coal mining buildings remaining in Wales that have been rated among the most endangered in our country.
The Colliery was built in 1907-1911 at a time when South Wales was the world’s largest coal-exporter. It still has 11 separately listed buildings as well as other listed surrounding structures – the winding houses, fan house, chimney and power-house are all listed Grade II*.
We have already brought an eminent microbiologist, Dr Rao, from India to meet with the volunteers there and discuss options for tackling contamination in the river and he has identified an environmentally safe chemical treatment that can be used to treat the contamination safely.
He has offered his time for free however, we need to raise £500 to purchase and import the safe chemical treatment and solve the river contamination once and for all.
