Zip wire brings new life to Tower Colliery in Rhondda Cynon Taf

A zip line has opened at what was the last deep coal mine in Wales.

The ride takes visitors on an aerial trip across Tower Colliery near Hirwaun, Rhondda Cynon Taf, which closed in 2008.

The opening was delayed from last summer due to the coronavirus pandemic but now claims to be the fastest seated zip line in the world and the longest in Europe.
