History - Continued

The colliery site was cleared and today the only thing that remains is the unique washery slurry tower ( the concrete structure mentioned previously). As seen from the main road.



It would be remiss of us not to appreciate the fact that the village also has a history and, in fact, a presence in the world of hill sheep farming.

There is also a history of horse breeding locally horse

that still thrives today.
