  1. A bit of a revisit to see if anything had changed since my last visit in 2014 Well worth a look if your passing. Some History The Culvert in Ebbw Vale is along the River Ebbw Fawr, a stretch of just over a mile of the river was Culverted in 1937 to accommodate expansion of the steel works. The tunnel was originally a brick lined concrete arch for its entire length. In places it has raised walkways on either side, it is well documented that someone died in this Culvert from touching a live wire that some metal thieves had cut some years ago. Pics Thanks for looking
  2. Visited with @albino jay and @GK-WAX and thanks again to jay for doing the driving and I also stole your history mate because I couldn’t find any hope you don’t mind. We was passing by the mill on our way home so popped in for a look. And glad we did I like these old mills. And the demo team were already on site so don’t know how long it has left to stand. So here’s the history and pics.. Steam-powered worsted-spinning mill built around 1850 on Black Brook. Owners and tenants of the mills have included James Nutton & Company [1863] John Horsfall & Sons Limited [1896] F. K. Adcock & Company [1936] Part of the Mills are still standing though no longer used. The mill had a 170 ft tall chimney which was struck by lightning in 1967. The chimney was reduced in height – to avoid further strikes – and was finally demolished in March/April 1992 The majority of the Mills were demolished in 2017.

  3. This is a fantastic site full of old and new trains and related kit. Swansea council has been trying for ages to get it shut down and has now succeeded. It was close to me so hood_mad and I decided to have a look. There are CCTV cameras in the area, notably, one on the main wall of the workshop building, a really small almost webcam like one and a few normal industrial types on the roof of Morris Bros. Anyway, onto the photos. Under carriage near the entrance to the tracks from the north side. Platform north end. Gritter carriage. Track shot. hood_mad on the way up the tracks. Coming up to the site. View from one of the signal towers Brick tower?? Discreet warnings Main workshop, note camera top left of door. There were loads of carrieages. Inside the blue carriage in the first photo. Engine. Inside locked engine room - shot through holes in the door. Happy & Sad. Crane. Open carriage like in the movies. Burnt out carriage. One of the fires burnt the alloy doors. Signal box. Inside Drivers compartment of one of the newer engines. Largish spider. Cheers for looking. J.
