Be proud of our past. The photograph, taken in the 1930’s, looks along Bridge Street towards Pontyrhun Bridge. The scene is dominated by the engine house which contained the pumping engine that lifted water from the River Taff to the Glamorganshire Canal. This was demolished soon after the photograph was taken and the masonry used to build the church in Merthyr Vale. The Dynevor Arms is the only surviving example in Troedyrhiw of a canalside building.
