Myfanwy

"Myfanwy" by the Abertillery Orpheus Male Voice Choir.


Below: Tony Williams and Jim Line in front of The Guardian statue created by artist Sebastien Boyesen on the site of the explosion in the Six Bells pit in 1960; the worst mining disaster in Wales after the war.

The names of the forty-five men who died are cut into panels around the memorial. The artist L.S. Lowry painted this landscape.

The town of Abertillery, twelve miles north of Newport, is visible surrounded by hills and woodland.
