Synopsis

Pontypridd History Tour takes the reader on an exciting journey through this iconic market town, which sits at the gateway to three historic valleys of the South Wales coalfield. From pastoral, drovers' river-crossing into a town that embodied a thriving conduit to capitalist mineral prospecting on a prodigious scale, this guides delves into the many changes that have made Pontypridd what it is today. Pontypridd encapsulates all the excesses of the saga of the South Wales' coal and railway bonanza. It survives into the twenty-first century - to outlast the pits that gave it life and reared it.

Alun Seward, a semi-retired estate agent, was born and bred in Rhondda. Although he has lived for over 25 years in Radyr on the outskirts of Cardiff, he has a great love of Rhondda and its heritage and feels it should be celebrated. An aspiring novelist, he wrote all the text for this book. He has two children and four grandchildren. David Swidenbank is a freelance writer and photographer, and took and assembled all the photos for this book. He trained in Documentary Photography at Newport Art School in the late 70s, after which he spent some years working as a photographer for a number of national magazines. He is currently studying for a B.A. in photographic studies, and has several photos exhibited at The Wales Millennium Centre. He has lived in Porthcawl for nearly twenty years with his wife Chris.
