Description

Senghenydd was a rural community until it was industrialized in the 19th century after coal was discovered in the hills. It is located in Aber Valley. This 1980 photograph shows dense housing and the surrounding hill side. The coal mines have since closed, and now most residents commute out of town for employment.
