Entrance road to Celtic Energy's Nant Helen coal mine near Coelbren
Viewed across the A4221 between Abercraf and Coelbren. Nant Helen is an opencast coal site on the northern outcrop of the South Wales coalfield. The mine produces anthracite coal from thirteen individual coal seams located up to one hundred and fifty metres below the surface.

Celtic Energy Limited is the successor in South Wales to the former British Coal Corporation (privatised in 1994) that was responsible for all of British Coalís surface coal mining activities in South Wales.

Among the warning signs are one showing the times when blasting is in progress, and another warning of overhead power lines ahead. Clearance is 17 feet, the height of the bar between the two poles.
