FALCON HILDRED

Cwmtyleri on Sunday 7th January 1968, with miner and his dog returning home.

Everything has gone now - mine, houses and chapel, and all that’s left, apart from some new housing, is a pair of wheels from one of the colliery headframes set in concrete and a plaque to the memory of William Williams who was killed along with others on 4th November 1939 - not in a mining accident, but in Newport, as one of the Chartists.
