Six Bells Colliery Aerial Ropeway – Lower Section and Colliery Washery.
The map shows the lower section of the aerial rope-way and filling station situated between the river and sidings. The route of the aerial rope-way can be seen going between the Arael School and houses on Aberbeeg Road at Warm Turn.

In December 1924 great concern of falling buckets from the rope-way close to the houses prompted a resident to file a petition to have the colliery company have a more secure and better protective bridge. Though this couldn’t have put much pressure on the company has in January 1931 the argument for a secure bridge was raised again when a survey was carried out and found that over a few months 11 buckets had fell from the flight and 4 of those fell on the road by the school.
