A working coal mine from 1880 to 1980, it was opened to the public in 1983 under the auspices of the National Museum of Wales. The site is dedicated to operational preservation of the Welsh heritage of coal mining, which took place during the Industrial revolution. Located adjacent to the preserved Pontypool and Blaenavon Railway, Big Pit is part of the Blaenavon Industrial Landscape, a World Heritage Site, and an Anchor Point of the European Route of Industrial Heritage. For some years before closure, the mine had been identified as being a possible heritage attraction and a working group was set up made up of the National Coal Board, local government, the National Museum, the Welsh Development Agency and the Welsh Office. Soon after the pit closed, Torfaen Borough Council bought the site for £1 and it was given to a charitable trust called the Big Pit (Blaenavon) Trust to manage the conversion to a heritage museum. The initial development cost £1.5 million with funding from the Welsh Tourist Board, the European Regional Development Fund, the borough council and Gwent County Council. The mine reopened for visitors in 1983 and created 71 jobs. A number of buildings were subsequently given protected status at the site. The Powder House, Saw mill Office Electrical Workshop, Pit Head Building, Headframe and Tram Circuit, and Miners' Bathhouse were each given Grade II Listed Building status on 2 September 1995. The Powder House building was used to store explosives needed for mine work during the time Big Pit was an active mine. The mine is covered by HM Inspectorate of Mines regulations, because it is still classed as a working pit. Visitors wear a plastic hard hat, safety lamp, and a battery on a waist belt which weighs 5 kilograms . Visitors must also carry on their belt a rebreather, which in case of emergency will filter foul air for approximately one hour, giving a chance for survival and escape. Before taking the 50 minute underground tour 90 metres below ground, contraband must be surrendered, such as anything containing a dry cell battery from watches to mobile phones. Automatic gas monitoring systems are discreetly positioned around the tunnels, as are emergency telephone systems. Some safety beams were monitored around the area. =========================================== Watch more videos: ►Best Tourist Attractions Places To Travel In UK-England | Arthur's Seat Destination Spot - Tourism In UK-England: https://goo.gl/p4LptH ►Best Tourist Attractions Places To Travel In UK-England | Beaulieu Palace House Destination Spot - Tourism In UK-England: https://goo.gl/7J2EbZ ►Best Tourist Attractions Places To Travel In UK-England | Big Pit National Coal Museum Destination - Tourism In UK-England: https://goo.gl/jXXsiy #tourism #touristattractions #touristplaces #touristspot #touristdestination #famouslandmarks #vacation #travel

ABANDONED 20TH CENTURY PENALLTA COLLIERY SOUTH WALES
 
10:53
Come check out this abandoned Colliery in South Wales and the Number 2 up shaft with me CollidingPlanets. Music by PLUG N PLAY https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTizabIZiASXACr9B0RxeZA The Powell Duffryn Steam Coal Company maintained ownership of Penallta colliery until Nationalisation in 1947. The two shafts of Penallta colliery were sunk by the Powell Duffryn Steam Coal Company in 1905/6. The first coal was raised in 1909 from the upper six feet seam and subsequently from the lower nine and seven feet seams. The number 1 shaft (downcast) and number 2 shaft (upcast) were 783 and 750 yards deep respectively. These shafts were subsequently extended to reach 800 yards in 1960 making it the last deep mine working in the Rhymney Valley. Penallta colliery was maintained as one of the most advanced collieries using up-to-date coal cutting machinery. 1930 saw the production of 975,603 tons of coal and the European record for coal recovered in 1935. In the late 1940's one of the first power loaders to be used in British mines, the Meco-Moore Cutter Loader, was installed which helped produce the 500,000 tons of coal raised in 1954. The 1960 shaft extension scheme included electrification of the shaft winding engines. In the mid 1970's 700 men were producing 210,000 tons of coal yearly. The 291 men employed in 1908 soon swelled to 1,920 in 1909. 1913 saw a slight reduction in the workforce to 1,281 men but in 1923, 2,395 men were employed which subsequently peaked at 3,208 men in 1931. 1947 saw a reduction to 1,934 men which reduced down to a mere 700 men in the 1970’s. Post 1984/85 The miners marched back to the Penallta Colliery behind their lodge banner making an impressive return to work following the end of the strike. Thirty two collieries were working in the South Wales coalfield following the 1984/85 miners strike. About a third of the remaining collieries in South Wales were then closed within a year of the end of the strike, the rest following shortly afterwards. Penallta was one of the few pits in the coalfield that was chosen to undergo a programme of modernisation, with £3.5m being invested in rapid coal-winding skips and a new heavy-duty high-technology coalface. In 1986 a major fire caused the closure of a coal face. Closure Penallta colliery was scheduled for closure by the British Coal Corporation (the statutory successor to the NCB) in November 1990. Despite this, by March 1991 the highest-ever productivity rate of 590,000 tonnes per annum of coal was being produced at Penallta. A brass band led the last shift of miners leaving Penallta colliery on Friday 1st November 1991. This marked the closure of the last deep mine working in the Rhymney Valley.

Big Pit is a coal mine in Blaenavon, Wales where some of Brittany's ancestors on the Bowen side worked. In those days, it was primarily an iron mine. Because of the methane gas that builds up in coal mines, you're not allowed to take anything with a battery down. So, the video is just on the surface. With how many times I hit my head on this trip, it was nice to have a hard hat on when we when were down below to save some brain cells.
