The Stranded Assets

A walk from the Bwlch to Maesteg

This journey follows the decline of the coal industry and how the communities that depended on it suffered. It explores:

The legacy of Wales’ capital – a city built on the wealth of coal / Insole Court – the home of George Insole and my playground as a kid / How the world’s biggest exporter of coal fell into decline / The Bwlch mountain road built by unemployed coal miners in 1920 / The mountain bike park and the rebirth of coal country into clean energy and leisure activities / The legacies of stranded assets.
