Llancaiach  Glamorgan


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Llancaiach like this:

LLANCAIACH, a railway station on the E border of Glamorgan; on the Taff Vale extension railway, 2½ miles E of Quaker's Yard Junction, and nearly midway thence to the Rhymney Junction. It stands on a bleak mountain, amid collieries. The coal-field bere is traversed by many extensive faults, -one of which runs about 100 yards south-eastward; and the same coal which is worked by level at Tophill colliery, requires to be worked by a deep pit, at Llancaiach colliery, which is only a few hundred yards distant from the former.
