Guardian of the Valleys

By Beverley Cousins

'Guardian' is the largest mining memorial in Wales which commemorates the 1960 Six Bells mining disaster in which 45 men and boys lost their lives in an underground gas and coal dust explosion. When a tragedy happens to family friends you know in your home village, your faith is severely tested, but when you look at the Guardian your reminded that there is something watching over you, whether it's a structure like the Guardian or some spirit or force, it helps to restore your faith in God..
