near to Abersychan, Torfaen/Tor-Faen, Great Britain

Old mine workings at Talywain near Abersychan
Old mine workings at Talywain near Abersychan
A rare sight these days; an un-redeveloped old colliery site (not really landscaped for leisure purposes as in a country park, nor earmarked for brown belt redevelopment as in light industrial units or business park and possibly unsuitable for residential redevelopment).

It has a beauty all its own. A view of the old Valleys. Ah, nostalgia.
