Welcome to Cynon Culture

Cynon Culture

The objects of Cynon Culture is to promote and protect all aspects of the culture and history of the Cynon Valley. Our website is intended to inform and generate people’s interest in the valley and surrounding areas, and the material that is on this website is the results of many years of research. The material that you will see provides, for the first time, a detailed history of the valley online. The website is dedicated to all the researchers who loved local history and left a legacy of material for me to access, and in turn be able to provide for you – the readers.
