Hafod Van Level

Hafod Van Level.
This coal level was situated close to the railway on where Browns Corner is today. It was one of the oldest levels in Six Bells and was supposedly owned by Mr Thomas Phillips Price in 1869, as with the Durban Level, I don’t know if it was Messrs T. P. Price as in Thomas Protheroe Price? (More research is needed on these two coal owners).

It was listed in 1880 under the same ownership but not listed in 1896, 1908 or 1918.

In 1923 it was open, re-named the New Hafod Van Level and owned by the New Hafod Van Colliery Co, Six Bells, Abertillery and employed nineteen men below ground with one man on the surface.

It was not listed in 1938.
