The last miners of Tower Colliery,

South Wales .

Tyrone O'Sullivan

The  last man who held things together and helped the miners keep going through all the tough times.

From 1864 to 2008 the mine  supplied coal for  power stations  producing  steam energy for Electricity and  railways . It was one of the finest fossil fuels in the world. Many hundreds of Welsh  miners lost their lives working   in dangerous conditions when living in the the terraces of the South Wales valleys

After the mine closed  in 2008 all that's  left now are signs of the old days  to rust and give way to alternative sources of energy like the windfarms in the surrounding areas
