Coal was a massive industry in Wales. There is some evidence that there was some sort of mining even back in the 14th century however, it was during the industrial revolution that mining really took off.

Mining was run down quickly in the 1970s with the final deep mine closing in February 1980. This dram was used to carry coal from the mine before transferred to a larger container on the railway.
