Pontypridd, affectionately known as "Ponty" is situated 12 miles north of Cardiff on the A470 as the gateway to the famous South Wales valleys. Ponty is famous for its old bridge, built 1750, at that time, the world’s longest single spanning bridge. The popular Ynysangharad Park lies to the east side of the River Taff. It has avenues of mature trees and colourful flower gardens as well as many amenities. If you are there on a Sunday check out the local bands. Music buffs will appreciate that Tom Jones, the Lost Prophets, Sir Geraint Evans and Stuart Burrows all hail from Ponty or close by. Historians and geologists alike will be fascinated by Pontypridd Common where one boulder, known as the Rocking Stone, is the central point for the Druid's Circle of smaller stones which was constructed in the C19.by Dr. William Price an eccentric character best remembered for cremating the body of his 5 month old son in 1884. He was then brought to trial thus establishing the legality of cremation. His ghost (with characteristic long hair and cap of a whole fox's skin) is rumoured to still walk here so be careful who you talk too.
