Gleision Colliery

'There are tears in my eyes now, as I send my love from one end of Wales to the other, from Llanystumdwy in the flank of Snowdonia down to Cilybebyll in the Swansea valley, from one old writer at her computer beside the Dwyfor river to those unknown friends of mine mourning their loss beside the Gleision colliery.'

Jan Morris, The Guardian. Sat 17 September 2011.

'Accuse me of sentiment too, mock me for mawkishness. I don't care.'
