Abandoned But Loved

Hello there, welcome to Abandoned But Loved (Or ABL if you're lazy like me). On this blog I post photos of abandoned places and the likes. Every now and again I do post something personal though, just saying...

My posts

Work began on Penalta Colliery in 1901 and by 1909 was in full production, In 1939 Penalta held the record for the most coal produced in a single week.

In 1986 there was a major fire which caused the closure of a coal face. The colliery survived until 1991, when political pressure forced its final closure. A number of building survive, including the Headstocks, bathouse and winding house as well as number of small workshops. In the future the buildings may be converted to homes and offices.
