UK - Wales - Risca


Sam sent me this card of his hometown of Risca.  Located in South Wales.   Risca lies at the south-eastern edge of the South Wales Coalfield, and a coal mine used to operate in the town with terraced housing nearby for workers.  It has a rural aspect, and is surrounded to the east and west by several extensively wooded hills including Mynydd Machen (1,188ft/362m) and Twmbarlwm (1,375ft/419m) which attract tourists for the hillwalking and mountain bikers to Cwmcarn Forest Drive.  Thanks Sam! :)
