Penallta Colliery © Janice Lane. The last deep mine in the Rhymney Valley, closed in 1992. At its peak the colliery employed over 3,000 men in a number of adjacent communities and at one time held the European record for coal production. It had been at the heart of the local economy and the local community for over 85 years. The closure of the colliery had a major impact in terms of the social, economic and environmental needs of the area.

Ystrad Mynach is a town in the county borough of Caerphilly, traditional county of Glamorgan, south Wales, 5 miles north of Caerphilly town. It has a population of around 10,000 and stands in the Rhymney Valley.

In the welsh language, 'ystrad' is a wide flat bottomed valley and 'mynach' means monk.

The town houses a number of council offices, as well as Ystrad Mynach College, a further education college established in 1959 to provide training for local coal miners and now claiming a roster of over 12,000 students.

The nearby Penallta Colliery was the last to close in the valley. Other notable buildings are the Ystrad Mynach railway station, opened in 1890, a community hospital, a number of schools, and the Beech Tree, Coopers Arms and Royal Oak pubs.

From 1927 to 1996 Ystrad Mynach hosted the 'F' division headquarters of Glamorgan Constabulary (from 1968, South Wales Police).

Ystard Mynach railway station was a location for one of Ronnie Barker's Porridge episodes.

Records show that Ystrad Mynach railway station was in existence in 1857.
