The old winding wheel at the entrance to the industrial park is from the Nantgarw colliery that once stood here. Just around the corner is the famous Nantgarw pottery. I'll show you more pictures tomorrow.
Here's the original bridge in Pontypridd.
The Old Bridge (Welsh: Yr Hen Bont), which is now also known as the William Edwards Bridge or Pontypridd Bridge, was originally known as the New Bridge or Newbridge, it is an arched single-span footbridge that spans the River Taff at Pontypridd in Wales. The bridge was built by William Edwards and was completed in 1756. The bridge now has statutory protection as a scheduled ancient monument.
These were taken on the Taf Trail on the way to Pontypridd [Ponty].
In winter with all the leaves gone you get different views, and in all the times I've ridden this trail, I've never noticed this culvert and pipe before.
They are resurfacing the trail and its a work in progress. Its amazing that its being done at all with all the council cutbacks, so thanks to Rhondda Cynon Taf, it will be appreciated.
These are the remnants of the old docks, maybe left behind, after the redevelopment, as a reminder!
Directly in the middle of the picture on the shoreline is the Penarth Custom house, now a restaurant.
