Porth is a village in the Rhondda Valley in South Wales. The two bridges in the village, the Pont Rheola and the Pont y Cwmmer date back to the early 16th century, although the area was uninhabited at that time, being mainly forest. The trees were felled to provide timber for the English navy and because of this work, the village of Porth began to emerge. Later, during the Industrial Revolution, and the advent of the coal-mining industry, the village continued to expand.
