Llanbradach Colliery, Llanbradach, Glamorganshire

Llanbradach is a small village less than 3 miles north of Caerphilly. It is mostly residential, and contains one pub, a primary school, a small local shopping area, a recreation ground, a library, two doctor's surgeries, and a youth centre.
The coal mine was opened in the 1890s, and reached peak coal mining production in the 1930s, but was shut down in 1961. A number of old mine buildings are still visible to the rear of the village.
