Treharris is a small town and community in the Taff Bargoed Valley in the south of Merthyr Tydfil County Borough, South Wales. It is located about 1 kilometre west of Trelewis, from which it is separated by the Taff Bargoed river, and 1.5 kilometres from Nelson in Caerphilly county borough and has a population of 6,252. As a community, Treharris includes the villages of Quakers Yard and Edwardsville. Due to steepness and narrowness of both the Taff and Taff Bargoed valleys at Treharris several notable bridges and viaducts have been built in the area.

Another famous attraction in South Wales is Bute town Heritage. This model village was one man's dream of quality workers housing at a time when other ironmasters were debating whether or not the lower classes could even use a toilet. Nestled at the top of the Rhymney Valley, it is an architectural gem. Bute Town was mainly built in around 1830 to house ironworkers, but through its life it has welcomed people from across the UK and even from overseas who were all seeking work and a happy life. Take a trip here and enjoy some traditional Welsh pub grub to finish off your adventure.
