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.


Revetment wall of rubble sandstone increasing in height from S to N as the sloping road to the lower level of the colliery falls beside it. It has the remains of pulleys and fittings and is surmounted by a fence of standard rails with winding cables passed between them, no longer intact.
