The Rhondda Valleys was once famed as the coal mining centre of the world. In times past the people of the Rhondda would help each other with what little they had, and your neighbours were often as close as your family.

Of course times have now changed, and even though I no longer live there I will never forget my wonderful childhood growing up in Ynyshir in the 1950's and 1960's. In those days you knew the names of everyone in your street, and many outlying streets as well. I grew up at a time when one could travel long distances on your pushbike without fear of e.g. being abducted or attacked. A visit to Cardiff National Museum or Caerphilly Castle would be nothing out of the ordinary despite Cardiff being about 18 miles away. I guess we all believe that 'the old days' were the best - I certainly do.

If you have any connection with the 'Valleys' then I believe you may enjoy my Rhondda Valleys Images website here.
