Pontneddfechan

Pontneddfechan is a village in the Vale of Neath in the far south of Powys, Wales. Locally, the name is conventionally pronounced as in English, and may be seen written as "Pontneathvaughan".The village stands at the confluence of the Rivers Mellte and Nedd Fechan and provides a convenient access points to the superb series of waterfalls that characterise the upper Neath valley. Dinas Rock, a steeply pitched anticline in the limestone rocks at Craig-y-Dinas, is a favourite spot for rock-climbers.HistoryIndustrial activities in the region started with a 21-year lease of an area of land from the Marquess of Bute by the Quaker entrepreneur William Weston Young, for the sinking of silica mines around Craig-y-Dinas from 1822 onwards. The silica was extracted for the manufacture of firebricks at the Dinas Firebrick Co. in Pont Walby. In 1843, Young's lease ran out and the then Riddles, Young & Co. firebrick manufacturers moved to a new premises on The Green, Neath. The stone sleepers for the silica mine tramway were never removed and can still be seen set into the path of the waterfall walk.
