    I have a snuff box which belonged to my Great Grandfather , he was from Clun , Shropshire and moved to Merthyr to work , here he met and married my Great Grandmother and they did move back to Clun. The snuff box was made for him by the pithead blacksmith , if anyone can tell me the where abouts of this mine and any details i would be very gratefull. DSC_0225.JPG

    Perhaps it closed too early but wait, there's more!
