Tonypandy Powerhouse
Tonypandy Powerhouse
Built in 1905, the Tonypandy Powerhouse became the engine house of the Llwynypia pit, and five years later became the starting point of the Tonypandy riots.

It was damaged during those riots after lock-out notices were issued to miners after they refused pay cuts in August of that year. Three months later an official strike began by all those employed by the Cambrian Combine.

The riots broke out in the area of the Powerhouse and windows were smashed. There was also rioting in Dunraven Street and Pandy Square in Tonypandy on the same day.

By 7 November, work at all the Cambrian Combine collieries had stopped, with the exception of the Llwynypia pit.
