What a difference 100 – 150 years has made

Birds eye views of Troed-y-rhiw and beyond looking N, S, E and W. How different these scenes would have looked 100 to 150 years ago when collieries, ironworks, tall chimney stacks, steam trains etc would have dotted the landscape.


About davidjcollier

Originally from South Wales I have lived in Nottinghamshire for over forty years. I am married and have three grown up children and two grandchildren. Having worked in education for 43 years I will retire in July 2012. My interests include history (general, local and family), rugby union, swimming, photography, bird watching and gardening. For the benefit of anyone who may actually read this (extremely unlikely, I admit) please do not confuse 'interests' with knowledge or skill. My involvement in a community project which aims to rescue a graveyard from the effects of almost 30 years of neglect. also keeps me quite busy. View all posts by davidjcollier
