Lee Dare is a Treharris lad, who is a professional photographer, please visit his website for more details


Stock photographs for future use mostly 2020 but not all, some are 2019

This page has been created, thanks to Lee agreeing to supply modern day photographs for the website. These photographs will be a resource that can be used and appreciated in the future by visitors to this site, they are new to us at the moment, but time flies by so quickly that they will become history in no time at all.I have added a few of my own or some exceptional ones from other sources but the majority are thanks to Lee.

I also hope that visitors to the site , who were from the district but have now moved away can enjoy seeing our villages as they are at the present time and visitors to the site , who have never been to our district will get a chance to see how lucky we are to live here.

The photographs will all be from the six villages of our District.
