Power house converted in social club.
The colliery was sunk in the 1870s and was operated for most of its life with the adjacent Westminster Colliery. It was never large, with only 185 workers in 1896 and 266 in 1908. It was closed in 1925.
The tall building on the corner is the Gwersyllt Sports & Working Men's Club, which was converted from a mine building in 1931. Refreshments and toilets are available here when the club is open. Other ex-mine buildings can be seen through the fence at the end. The remains of the spoil tip are opposite the engine house
