    I had a hand-me-down Vauxhall Cavalier off my old man that I would park, turn off with the key, get out and go in the house, sit down in the living room and I could still hear it going from where I was sat.

    On the 24th May 1901, 81 of the 82 men working at the Universal Colliery, Senghenydd, were killed in a gas and coal dust explosion.
    A report showed that fire, coal dust and air produced a deadly mixture, and new laws were passed requiring the constant damping down of coal dust. However, a much bigger disaster occurred in the same mine 12 years later, killing 439 men and boys, the worst mining disaster in UK history. Safety had not been prioritised and regulations had been ignored. Universal Colliery was finally closed on Friday 30 March 1928 with the loss of 2500 jobs.

    Those houses on Windsor esplanade go for a pretty penny, nice houses, deceptively big.

    Seeing the roll call for the names of the deceased is very sobering, some families lost every male relative, and some of the ages were very young, just kids.
