Glamorgan, Gilfach Goch, How it looks now - post coal mining era
The pub on the left hand side of the top image was the Six Bells
Hotel (named after one of the areas first coal mines), and called
the 'Three Bells' in Richard Llewelyn's " How
Green was my Valley".
The only visual remnant of Gilfach Goch's mining era is part of
that smoke stack
on top of the mountain. The single building on the mountain on
the right hand side was a hotel, the Talbot Arms later to be called
Talbot House. Just to the left of the building at the bottom of
photo were the last 2 collieries (coal mines) in Gilfach Goch,
called the 'Trane' and the very last - 'The Britannic'. The building
office, the pay point, and underneath was the Ambulance Room that
would be known as the First Aid Room now.
