SJ2946 : Rhosllanerchrugog

taken 1 year ago, near to Rhosllanerchrugog, Wrexham/Wrecsam, Great Britain

This depiction of a colliery headstock wheel is a reminder that Rhosllanerchrugog and the associated settlements of Johnstown, Pant and Ponciau were coal mining villages. The last local colliery, Bersham, closed in 1986. The plaque to the right commemorates Tom Jones, 'trade Unionist, Socialist and Spanish Republican volunteer'.
