Gŵrp Cadwraeth Camlas Pontypridd
The Pontypridd Canal Conservation Group was formed in 2010 and has been steadfastly working towards the restoration of the only remaining double-lock system on the Glamorganshire Canal.
The PCCG comprises those from the Pontypridd area with an interest in the restoration and also supporters from the wider canal community, including those with specialist knowledge.
Developments are publicised in this web site and on our new Facebook group page. For a more frequent updates on ongoing works please visit our Facebook page.
On Saturday 27th September we held the first of what we hope will be many more volunteer days. The cakes you see us with were made and kindly supplied by one of our members, Ann G Morgan (pictured below) and her daughter. A big thank you also to Nick Otley of The Bunch of Grapes who kindly provided a meal and refreshments for all volunteers afterwards.
