GB |


Cefn Coed Colliery Museum is a former coal mine, now operating as a museum.
Coal mining in the Neath area began with the development of the port of Neath in the 16th century.

Cefn Coed Colliery was opened as an anthracite colliery by the Llwynonn Colliery Company during the 1920s.

Like much of western South Wales coalfield, the coal was high quality anthracite.

The complete above ground mine workings remain intact on site, with the steam winding engine from No.2 shaft now electrically driven.

The museum is an anchor point on the European Route of Industrial Heritage.
