Blogger seems to be playing up as this is my third attempt to put this post together.
This is Senghenydd, I'm sure I've shown you pictures of it before, but the reason why we visit it is that there is a wonderful hill up from the village to the moorland in the first picture. Its like a ride through history, as looking back down you can see the remains of the colliery and the scene of the greatest mining accident in UK history. In 1913 489 miners were killed in an undeground explosion, cause by a build up of "damp" gas.
In the top picture, where the top track going off to the right, is the remains of the "Senghenydd Dyke" an ancient 13th century boundary ditch, of the de Clare family who lived in Caerphilly Castle.
