Remembering the centenary of the UK’s worst mining disaster
The worst disaster in the UK’s mining history happened at Senghenydd Colliery near Caerphilly, South Wales on 14 October 1913. An initial explosion ignited coal dust and caused a catastrophic explosion that ripped through the mine, killing 439 men and boys.
