Rhondda Heritage Park Visit

We had a great time at Rhondda Heritage Park learning about the mining industry and its impact on the surrounding community of Trehafod. We had an excellent guide(Tony an ex-miner) who took us underground and showed us exactly what working conditions were like for the miners and how there was a sense of community and passion for their work. It was a great day enjoyed by all!
