Even before the 1980s Tory government closed the pits and almost ruined the communities of South Wales, this was the site of a a number of old mines, tips and railway cuttings. With fantastic imagination the local council, in the 70s, cleared the land and gradually turned it into a country park - and it's wonderful. You can walk for miles - close to the villages of Landare and Cwmdare and Aberdare town itself, or you can wander up the valley, amost to the tops of the mountains between the Cynon and Rhondda valleys - through countryside which is almost a living museum as you pass some remants of the industrial heritage. You can also walk from here along another old railway line to Cwmaman. Fantastic!
