Most of the colliery disasters in South Wales have been covered in previous books, but the one at the Great Western Colliery in Hopkinstown, Pontypridd, in 1893, seems to have been missed out, the Albion Colliery disaster in nearby Cilfynydd casting an even bigger shadow over the district. The era of the coal indistry in South Wales is now a distant memory, but this book pays tribure to all the men that worked in the Great Western and Tymawr collieries throughout the years until its closure in 1983.
