This is a personal site. While I write mostly about the history of Mountain Ash and the Cynon Valley, I might well take detours into other interests. Those detours are unlikely to be frequent as, for example, my enthusiasm for opera is too unsophisticated for me to write about it with any confidence.
My health has been significantly compromised over the last few years, hampering the productivity I would wish to have, in this and other writing projects, as well as in life itself. I don’t know if that matters as greatly as I feel it does in the context of this site but there is currently a paucity of content that dismays me.
My aim is to build this into a useful site for those with family ties to the area, as well as those interested in the history of the town. There is a long way to go before I complete the projects I have planned but I think the results will have some value.
If you have any queries about anything I have posted, please get in touch.
