Bargoed Miners Heads Black and White

Bargoed Miners Heads Black and White

Bargoed in Caerphilly County, South Wales in the United Kingdom is a former mining town and one of the key towns in the Rhymney Valley. The colliery was sunk in 1897 with the first coal being raised in 1901. The colliery eventually closed in 1977. This street art sculpture depicting three miners’ heads is situated on Hanbury Square in Bargoed in South Wales in the United Kingdom. Standing almost four metres tall, ‘Miners Heads’, designed by artist Malcolm Robertson forms a bold interpretation of three miners, joined together to signify brotherhood. The inscription on the steps was composed by local schoolchildren and reads:- With pride remember them for us, a future they built, remember the miners. Our town, slowly built around the mine, developed into something fine.
