This was the reason for the visit
its on the same line as Taffs Well and a pleasant 35 minute train ride away.
The Parc and Dare
The Parc and Dare was built in 1892 and was originally a working mens library and institute. It was funded by the workers of the Parc and Dare collery who donated a penny from each pound of their wages per week. Here the miners could meet, learn and socialise , as it featured a bar as well as a library.
In the early 20th century a theatre was added and in the 1920 a cinema was installed. It still functions as a theatre today with many productions being produced locally.
Being a valleys town the shops are in one street, and being Wales it was raining.
Nowadays its not often you come across a traditional butchers.
As always in a valleys town there are plenty of cafes and Treorchy lives up to this, so you'll never go hungry or thirsty.
