Henllys Colliery, Cwmbran 23 August 2016

Henllys Colliery, Cwmbran 23 August 2016
A two section reservoir just above the upcast shaft of Henllys Colliery; there is a regulating pipe in the dividing wall. At the southern end, behind the photographer, there is a sluice.

The colliery was opened in 1814 by Cyrus Hanson, and closed in 1928, a year after its neighbour, Cwmbran Colliery.
