Senghenydd On the 14 October 1913, Senghenydd suffered the worst mining disaster in Britain's history, when a second gas explosion occurred at the Universal Colliery, resulting in the loss of 439 lives, plus one rescuer. Many of the surviving miners went back to help their workmates who were either trapped or buried alive.
Senghenydd Universal Colliery was finally closed on Friday 30 March 1928 (except for a ventilation shaft) with the loss of 2500 jobs.
Senghenydd The name derives originally from the name Sangan + suffix ydd, probably meaning "the land or territory associated with Sangan". The suffix 'ydd' is often used in Welsh, following a personal name, to denote ownership, as in 'Meirionnydd' or 'Eifionydd'.
Senghenydd Historically the name has appeared in a number of different forms, including: 'Seinhenit' (c.1179), 'Seighenith' (c1.194), 'Seynghenyth' (1271), 'Senghenyth' (1314), 'Seynthenneth' (1476), 'Seignhenith Suptus et Supra Cayach' (1578–84).
Senghenydd Senghenydd, along with its neighbouring town Abertridwr, make up the majority of the Aber Valley, and became urbanised in the 1890s, when the Universal (1891) and Windsor collieries were sunk in this region of the South Wales Coalfield.
Senghenydd Senghenydd is served by the B4263 road to Caerphilly, and connects to Nelson via roads over Mynydd Eglwysilan to the north.
Senghenydd Alternatively, the name may be a spelling variant, from 1326, of 'Seint Genith', from Saint Cenydd. The local church and school have taken this name, as has the nearby 20th-century settlement of Trecenydd.
Senghenydd Senghenydd () is a village in the Aber valley, roughly four miles north-west of the town of Caerphilly. Traditionally within the county of Glamorgan it is in the community of Aber Valley in the county borough of Caerphilly, Wales. The population of the Aber Valley in the United Kingdom Census 2001 was 6,696.
Senghenydd Senghenydd was originally a rural farming community, which became industrialised with the discovery of coal in the late 19th century. With the closure of the coal pits in the second half of the twentieth century, most people in the town now commute outside the Aber Valley for employment.
Senghenydd The town was also a stronghold for the Welsh during the late 11th century. By the middle of the 12th century, it remained under Welsh hands and the Welsh chieftain Ifor Bach (hence the name of the local welsh school in the town). Ifor Bach's son, Gruffydd ap Rhys was the last Welsh lord of the town before the English nobleman Gilbery de Clare, builder of Caerphilly Castle, gained control.
