About: South Wales Coal Miner Tower Colliery (Permission Visit) - Disused Urbex Explore
It’s been disused for 11 years, not 20
British Coal closed it in 1994. The staff bought it back and returned to work early 1995. Underground reserves were worked until 2008 - then Opencast (2012) to retrieve unworkable coal. I work with a few ex Tower boys - smashing gang of boys.
Glück Auf, my grandpa also was a coal miner. Me and my brother visited his mine(out of order). It was very interesting. Maybe i make a video of my next visit. Its “Blumenthal fortsetzung“ in town of Datteln, Germany
is the shaft capped?
