Claims in Pontyclun

Pontyclun is a village which can be found within the county borough of Rhondda Cynon Taf, in the south east of Wales. The village’s name translates from the Welsh language as ‘bridge over the River Clun’, with the Clun being a tributary to the River Ely, which runs through the settlement. The bridge in question is thought to be the one found traversing the Afon Clun just before its confluence with the Ely.

The History of Pontyclun

For the huge majority of its history, Pontyclun was a simple farm which at the beginning of the 19th century covered an area of around 20 acres and included only four or five households. This all changed, however, in the middle of that century when the rapid industrialisation seen around the UK also came to Pontyclun, together with the railway which arrived in 1851.

This led to the settlement adopting coal mining as its major economic impetus, and turned the area into a burgeoning Victorian industrial town. That booming town then attracted a huge amount of population growth, mostly thanks to an influx of former tin miners from Cornwall who were searching for work. This led to a period of thriving economic growth for Pontyclun too, but the story is unfortunately drastically different in the modern day.

Modern Day Pontyclun

After the decline of coal mining in Pontyclun and in Wales as a whole, what was a booming industrial town quickly regressed to village status with many people being forced to leave due to a lack of employment opportunities.That means that according to the latest available census data, Pontyclun now has a population of just under 6,000 residents. What that means is that when it comes to personal injury compensation claims in Pontyclun, the area is a largely unlikely source but that does not mean that the ins and outs of the claims process are not important in the area.
