The Blaenrhondda project is a collaboration between Cadw and Valleys Kids. Together we’re exploring the industrial and social history of the former Fernhill Colliery, and of the houses which once stood alongside it. Today this landscape is empty, the sights and sounds of industry and settlement long gone.
Using archives, archaeology, virtual reality and photography, we’re aiming to bring it back to life. Along the way we’ll be trying out loads of new activities, finding out stories about the site from the people who used to live and work there and exploring the rich heritage of this part of Wales.
