Rhondda Heritage Centre


Posted by Picasa
Rhondda Heritage Park was the lunch stop on our cycle ride today. Its not yet fully open for the season , but the cafe was.
I included the Alexander Cordell poster for Annie, who is a fan. If you haven't read him give him a try, as its a great way to learn the history of the South Wales coalfields.

  1. Thank you, Dave. You know I appreciate Cordell and all the history of your area. That coal dust is in my veins. Well, ancestrally speaking, it is.

  3. I had to come back to say I recently re-read Huckberry Finn too. And there's another story, Finn, told from the father's point of view, that's on the market, worth reading if you want to.

  4. What a beautiful shot of the buildings there. I guess that is the mining museum. I hope you enjoyed your ride!

  5. Huckleberry Finn is often cited as "THE GREAT AMERICAN NOVEL. It's interesting to me that it was just a coincidence that you read it. If I were to read THE GREAT WELSH NOVEL, I wonder what it would be.

    The inner-tube tire swing was made in Texas by a small company and was a gift to the Memphis children from a Texan family member. I have never seen another swing like it.

  6. Thanks Dave, you have taken me back in time to the Pontypridd area where I spent some holidays with relations many years ago. I vaguely remember the men in the family working in the coal mines. Also thanks for visiting my blog, Katie Dee's Pics, my S7000 camera has been sold and I am now using a Panasonic Lumix FZ50. Good luck with your photos.

  8. Oh one other thing I think you got the dog confused with the bird that I had to get rid of, Charlie was the bird name and Porky is the dog name.
