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.



We’ve continued adding more content to the Welsh Preachers area plus added some press cuttings for Miss Kate Smale in the Hirwaun section of the site.

We’re planning on publishing new content for the Abernant section of the site over the next couple of weeks – so please keep visiting the site periodically for updated content.


A Happy New Year to our visitors old and new!!!

We have plenty of new content planned for 2020 so please keep visiting the site and please let us know if there’s anything you’d like to see covered/updated via the Contact Us page.
