Penallta colliery closed in 1991
and while other collieries were being demolished, parts of
Penallta were left to stand and become derelict. Now in 2004 the
Penallta site is taking on a new life - a new community is being
born : houses, shops and it seems that the existing buildings may
be converted into flats/shops. Have a browse through the past.
