Henrhyd WaterFalls Information
The Henrhyd waterfall is located on the southern edge of the National Park where the rural area meets the old industrial valleys of South Wales.
This area was once part of the first industrial revolution that changed the face of South Wales. Swansea was known as 'Copperville' and the Swansea Valley was once full of belching smokestacks.
The last remaining working coal mine in Wales is less than 10 miles from here - Tower colliery at Hirwaun.
At one time the valleys of South Wales had hundreds of coal mines employing tens of thousands of people, producing millions of tonnes of coal which was exported worldwide.
