Navigation Colliery Crumlin was built by the firm of Partridge Jones and Company between 1907 and 1911. The firm was one of the largest coal combines in S Wales, owning 9 collieries in the Gwent valleys. Navigation Colliery was a show-pit of the period with high quality buildings and up-to-date machinery. One of the earliest collieries in S Wales to be built in brick rather than local stone with brick dressings. Closed 1967 and disused since. Powder store believed to be contemporaneous with rest of complex; such explosive magazines were an essential part of colliery sites.

Revetment walls of rubble hold back the very steep hillside and provide a protective enclosure for the store; the rear terrace wall extends from N of the Powder Store to the Electrical Outbuilding where it runs out into rock behind the buildings.
