Cefn Coed Colliery Museum

The museum is near Crynant in South Wales, 5 miles North of Neath on the A4109.

Two sets of headgear have been retained, together with one of the original winding engines (built by Worsley Mesnes in 1927). There are also two smaller winding engines by Andrew Barclay and Llewellyn & Cubitt, a large Belliss & Morcom air compressor, six Lancashire boilers, a heavily restored Neath gas tram, a large model railway layout, and a collection of artefacts and displays relating to mining in the area.
