These are some views of Glyncorrwg. It shows the area where South Pit used to be, coming up from Cymer and where the new ponds are. At the ponds, there is a visitors centre and a cycle shop where you can buy or hire bikes. From there you can cycle up to the top of the mountain where there are some stunning veiws. You can also make use of the caravan and camping site. Notice with the river views the stones are a redish colour, this is where the iron has been seeping out of the ground with the water and causing the discolouration. The streams are then directed into the reed beds where it is naturally filtered.

  The red colour is caused by the steel underground and seeping up with the water Up to where South Pit was. Around the bend was North Rhondda

Down to Glyncorrwg ponds Looking down from where South Pit was over the reed beds. The river is fed through these beds to filter out the steel.
