I wasn’t around in the South Wales valleys when the mines were still here, but fellow Flickr user trelewis was. She’s posted a set of photos of the Abercynon Colliery before it was closed and cleared (the Navigation Park business park sits on the site today). Good historical photos that might interest anyone who enjoys my Merthyr Road series of photographs.

I haven’t been to the site of the Aberfan disaster myself, but fellow Flickr user (and local history expert) thereggy has. He’s posted a poignant set of photos of the site of the Aberfan disaster and the memorial garden that stands there today. Well worth a look, and a read.
