Living in Llwydcoed: The Local Area Guide

The village of Llwydcoed is located in the Welsh district of Rhondda Cynon Taf. The village is proud of its industrial history and its place within the wider community.

Long before its industrial age, the village mainly consisted of farms and agricultural workers. That changed however with the opening of the Aberdare Ironworks in 1800, which created many jobs for the local people, forming the tight-knit community that exists today despite the industrial decline. The composer Griffith Rhys Jones once worked as a blacksmith at the ironworks before its closure in 1875. A statue of him is a proud landmark in the nearby town of Aberdare. Coal mining also boomed in the area before its eventual decline around the 1920s.

As previously mentioned, industrial decline has not dampened the spirits of the locals nor has it destroyed the bonds that kept the village together. Today, the village exists as a hub for those like enjoy a quiet lifestyle. The nearby towns of Merthyr Tydfil and Aberdare provide many shops and outings, Morlais Castle and Golf Club being a few notable locations. The village is immensely proud of its award winning Brass Band that go from strength to strength all year round and keep the community spirit alive. Fans of Ioan Gruffudd will be happy to know he was born in the village.
