Glamorgan, Gilfach Goch, How it looks now

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 the old photo were the last 2 collieries (coal mines) in Gilfach Goch, called the 'Trane' and the very last - 'The Britannic'. The building served as The Colliery Managers office, the pay point, and underneath was the Ambulance Room that would be known as the First Aid Room now.

The images of Gilfach Goch on this page are kindly shared with us from the collection of
Mr. Wyndham Jones - a keen local historian and ex Coal Miner. Wyndham would like to extend this credit to his contributors and friends - like Alison Morgan of Sydney - for enhancing his collection.
