The small town of Ferndale is located in the beautiful Rhonda valley in Mid Glamorgan. In recent history it was one of the many mining towns in Wales, its first shaft being drilled in 1857. Back in the day, Ferndale saw two large coal mining disasters. The first was in 1867 when an explosion beneath ground killed 178 miners. Two years later in 1869, another underground explosion was responsible for the deaths of another 53 miners.
Ferndale, which in Welsh is known as Glynrhedynog, is located 20 miles from Cardiff and approximately 40 miles from Swansea. With the passing of the coal mining industry, the industrial heart of the town all but disappeared, and many residents now commute to work as a result.
Inhabitants of Ferndale enjoy a wide range of sports and leisure facilities such as an astroturf football field that also doubles up as a sports ground for the many schools in the town, and in Darren Park, you can play tennis or crown green bowling. There is also a skate-park that BMX riders, roller-bladers and skateboarders can enjoy.
For anglers and those who love the outdoors, there is Darren Park Lake; a four acre man-made lake that offers freshwater fishermen the opportunity to catch bream, carp and tench, and provides a great backdrop for walking.
But the lake is not only an angler’s paradise; it is also steeped in Welsh legend. Llyn-y-forwyn, or as it is known in English, the “Maiden’s Lake,” is home to the enchantress, Nelferch. The tale goes that she married a mortal man. Foolishly, he broke a vow he made not to ask her about her past. She left him penniless and alone. It is said that her spirit haunts the lake to this day, and can be seen in the gloom where steep cliffs block out the sun from the shore.
In 2005 Ferndale was tagged as coming bottom of a house price league table consisting of 1,414 Welsh towns and villages. A recent article on the LAD Bible website published a headline saying that Ferndale is a town where you only need to earn £4 per hour to be able to buy a house. It is in actual fact one of the most affordable areas for house buying in the whole of the UK.
