    Default Penallta Colliery, Hengoed. April 2010


    Really wanted to post up another new site as my third report, but a mental day trip with Dangerous Dave ended up here, and i'm glad we did.
    The day had started badly, getting caught by security at Eddison swan cables, Lydbrook, (who then decided to call the cops, with four car loads turning up!?), we then got rumbled at Talgarth, by a cop who was hiding in the chapel?!

    Penallta was like a breath of fresh air, with a casual explore, enjoying the evening sun.

    Anyway, enough of my rambling, the history has been done loads of times so on with the pics, (just my take on it anyway!)

    Visited with Dangerous Dave, Total404 and his make Jake

    It's very rare I use the words epic or fail... but it sounds like your day warrants the phrase EPIC FAIL!

    Always good to see Penallta though. Glad the day wasn't a total wipeout! :)

    Nice to see you rescued your day with a quality explore in the end, always like seeing photos of Penallta. The security guards are a bit uptight down there!

    The revery alone will do, if bees are few.

    Good pics mate, I love Penallta, so relaxed there isn't it? Good pics of the headgears and the lockers. :) (never tire of seeing pics from here :) ).

    @DD, Feds? do you mean the police? We don't have Feds in the UK, unless we've moved across the ocean.
    GOOGLE is your friend :)
