BeschreibungPlease note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Penallta Colliery was a coal mine, located close to Hengoed in the Rhymney Valley in the South Wales Valleys. A coal mine which in 1935 held the European record for coal wound in a 24-hour period, it is now the site of an original redevelopment project which will make use of the former pit head buildings.Situated near Hengoed, in 1905 Powell Duffryn began the sinking of Penallta colliery, and had employed 291 men by 1908. The two shafts Nos.1 (downcast) and 2 (upcast) were 783 and 750 yards deep respectively, and at the time were the deepest in the South Wales coalfield.
