Pontypridd has a rich industrial past, any sign of which now virtually all gone.
This view of a modern suburb looks across the valley bottom, across the old terraced housing from its heyday, and on to the sweeping green hills beyond.
The local website speaks volumes about the nature of the town, this page about its past, but surf around other pages to read about the modern town.
In case you don't find it the above links, Tom Jones was born in Ponty !

Many beautiful autumnal colours in this view over the valley. I also enjoy the links you have included in your note, and i guess that in the industrial past, there were more smoke and soot here. Now it looks very clean and pleasant.
