Three CD-ROMs containing oral histories and an audio-visual presentation of the history of the villages of Blaengwynfi and Abergwynfi based on the oral history recordings and historic photographs of the area. The oral history recordings have been extracted as digital files in MP3 format.

Administrative / Biographical History

In October 2011 the Friends of Blaengwynfi Library Reading Group held a historical photographic exhibition to celebrate the 110th anniversary of the opening of the Workman's Hall and Library in Abergwynfi and Blaengwynfi in the upper Afan Valley. Associated with this, pupils from Cymmer Comprehensive School made recordings of conversations with long-term residents of the area, and these were combined to make an audiovisual DVD.
