ePub The Coal Industry In The Llynfi Valley ePub

by David Lewis

Fascinating to read how Colonel John North "The Alkali King" made his initial fortune by hedging during the Peruvian/Bolivian war with Chile and then used this to invest in the development of coal mines in the Llynfi Valley.The ramping up of development led to the Vale of Glamorgan railway line being developed so rich steam coal could be exported in larger volumes to ports in France, East Africa, Chile & elsewhere.

The book provides a rich flavour of the mines , associated workings, the social pressures that developed and progress to avoid mine fatalities, which are also explained.

Who would have thought that a Peruvian lady opened the St Johns mine? An excellent background.
