Postcards of Pentre, Rhondda Fawr

Local Access Forum member Mike Ash is converting some of his high quality photographs into postcards, available from Morgan News on Llewellyn Street, Pentre, and at Lemon Blues, a small local gallery and craft workshop also on Llewellyn Street (online http://www.lemonblues.co.uk/).  My scans are not as good as the cards.

Mike has himself restored parts of the Old Parish Road which has got covered in soil over the last half century.  Under about a foot of soil, there is a compacted stone surface good for human or horse feet.

?????????????????????????????????????????????

There’s a tale to the fine stone fountain, which was put up from public subscription in memory of William Hely Llewellyn … you can read the story on the back of the card if you visit Pentre.

Mike has captured the colours and rhythms of the valleys town just south of Treorchy, which was once a hub of coal mines producing top quality coal.
