Edeyrnion Historical Society

Mrs. Valmai Webb gave an extremely interesting talk on Penarth Mine at the last meeting. Penarth has played an important role in recent village history and was in production from 1850 until 1930, with several changes of ownership through families which are still represented in the area. Many of the workers lodged in the village and at the peak of its production there were some 200 men working. The society attracted an audience of some 70+ people to the meeting, which demonstrates the interest in local history within our own community.
