'Risca Industrial History Museum houses one of the best collections of artifacts relating to the industrial heritage of the South Wales valleys ... Oxford House Industrial History Society was formed in 1971 following a course of lectures given by the late Ray Bowen on industrial archaeology at Oxford House Adult Education Centre. The Museum displays its collection of artefacts, memorabilia and photographs illustrating some of the industrial history of the area: coal mining, the iron industry, tram roads, railways etc ... OHIHS meet in the Risca Colliers Institute, home of the Risca Industrial History Museum.'

'The Museum was founded in 1983. Its mission is to preserve, store, and interpret the heritage and history of the industries and people of the River Wandle ... The museum is located in Mitcham, Surrey ... The once industrial River Wandle flows through the London Boroughs of Croydon, Sutton, Merton and Wandsworth. It rises in both Carshalton and Croydon before its path takes it into the Thames at Wandsworth. With a fall of 38 metres (126ft) and a length of 19 kilometres (12 miles) it is a very fast flowing river ... Whilst industries still exist along the river today, they sadly no longer use its power. Today, the river is a place of leisure with nature reserves and pleasant parkland that makes a walk along its length a very enjoyable one.'
