Rhondda Valley & Pontypridd 1904-14 - Wales Sheet 248
This folded map which measures approximately 24" x 18" when unfolded is produced by Alan Godfrey and covers an area of about 18 miles by 12 miles. It shows railways, roads and canals, and gives a broad view of a wider area. It also includes an introduction and a more detailed map of a small town or village.
This Inch to the Mile map covers much of the area around the Rondda Valley, with coverage stretching from Margam eastward to Pontypridd, and from Glyncorrwg southward to Llantrisant. Other towns include Mountain Ash and Maesteg. The map is especially interesting for the collieries and railways along the valleys, which include the Rhondda, Ely Valley, Ogwr Fawr (Ogmore), Garw and others. Much of it is so crowded with information that it demands close inspection! On the reverse we include a detailed map of Coed Ely Colliery.
It is not possible to list the many hamlets, farmsteads and other topographical features shown on these maps. However, you may find it useful if we list the towns and principal villages or church parishes that are included on this map. Links are given for those for which detailed large-scale maps are also available.
