Hillside overlooking Taff Valley
Hillside overlooking Taff Valley
The lower half of the image is characteristic of the square and shows mainly enclosed hill pasture for sheep and cattle. The brownish strip at the centre and right is an old colliery spoil tip, poor quality grazing which is slowly improving.

Beyond (squares ST1284-85), the A470 trunk road from Merthyr Tydfil to Cardiff snakes around the foot of the hill called Craig yr Allt. Next, in the valley of the River Taff, lies the town of Taffs Well, with Garth Wood on the hill behind, and the Vale of Glamorgan beyond it.
