Rhun’s Bridge

The images show Taff Falls, Troedyrhiw around 100 years ago; the collapse of Pontyrhun Bridge in 1878 and two further pictures of the bridge (or, at least, a later replacement) from 1912 and 1925. The bridge reputedly marks the spot where Rhun, son of Brychan, was killed during his attempts to defend his sister Tudful and other family members from a murderous band of Picts

About davidjcollier

Originally from South Wales I have lived in Nottinghamshire for over forty years. I am married and have three grown up children and two grandchildren. Having worked in education for 43 years I will retire in July 2012. My interests include history (general, local and family), rugby union, swimming, photography, bird watching and gardening. For the benefit of anyone who may actually read this (extremely unlikely, I admit) please do not confuse 'interests' with knowledge or skill. My involvement in a community project which aims to rescue a graveyard from the effects of almost 30 years of neglect. also keeps me quite busy. View all posts by davidjcollier
