My g grandfather William Thomas was the manager of the abergorki mine and levels in the 1880ts You are correct that they closed pre NCB but I believe there was a abergorki mine in the Aberdare valley

Dear William Morris,

I will pass your comment on to the curator to see what they make of this mystery!

I am baffled by this. Abergorki colliery closed in 1935 and was abandoned in 1938. The NCB was not in existance in those days.
