Aberdare had a proud railway station within my lifetime (I'm 40). The current station is more of a halt. It is shabby and shameful. Aberdare is the main town of the Cynon Valley and deserves a station which reflects its history and position.
I appreciate this will take money. The station car park was recently upgraded. Any investment will be returned. The old High Level Station building is available and would give a much better impression of our town than the bus shelter stop we currently endure.
The High Level Station is a heritage building and sets a far better example of Aberdare.
Potential! Heritage building, better station, ticket office, waiting room, coffee shop, toilets, small WH Smiths (or similar), easier access for elderly and disabled as a gentle ramp leads directly from the car park, and a nicer welcome!
Let's make Aberdare proud again!
Welcome to the new version of Coflein.
This is part of our continuing programme of improving access to our records.
Coflein is the online database for the National Monuments Record of Wales (NMRW), the national collection of information about the historic environment of Wales. The name is derived from the Welsh cof (memory) and lein (line).
Coflein allows access to details of many thousands of archaeological sites, monuments, buildings and maritime sites in Wales, together with an index to the drawings, manuscripts and photographs held in the NMRW archive collections.
