C19 colliery magazine of Waun Coed colliery some 200m SW. It is said that the design of the roof with bricks on edge meant that in event of an explosion the force was directed upwards rather than outwards.
Colliery magazine, rectangular plan with main walls of Pennant sandstone rubble with brick infill to each end. Barrel roof originally of five bricks on edge but now mainly two bricks wide and rendered. Door with brick dressings and shallow segmental arch of brick voussoirs on right side of SW end together with small window above.
Included as a very rare survival of a C19 colliery magazine of special historic importance in this mining area.
