hi gary d llanhilleth miners institute has been there since 1906.Its a big brick structure.I know another one of mums uncles in six bells got caught out in a mine collapse.He reckoned some of the mines were interconnected and he came out in another mine.Another thing he said was they preffered the old wooden pit props as opposed to the concrete ones.This was because you could hear the wooden ones cracking,where as the concrete ones gave no warnings.
