Tondu (Welsh for black sward) began its life in the late 18th century as a coal mining village, in later years an iron works was also established and in the 19th century a brick works. The last remnants of these industrial sites were decommissioned in 1977 leaving a very popular local heritage centre and museum on its place. Now a popular location for commuters working in
Bridgend, Cardiff and even Swansea, there is an increasing demand for quality homes for sale.
At the nearby Parc Slip Nature Park there is a wealth of flora and fauna to see, whatever the season. After a century of coal mining on the site, the Wildlife Trust began to manage the land for nature in the late 1980s. Varied habitats have since been created and the park supports an increasing diversity of wildlife. Alongside Parc Slip Nature Park is Park Pond Nature Reserve which has an old millpond at its heart, surrounded by a small area of mature woodland. Here a different variety of wildlife can be seen, thanks to the existence of a set of habitats associated with the woodland's greater age.
There is a Visitor Centre with a 3D interactive exhibition, information, souvenirs and wheelchair access to most of the facilities, including refreshments. There are information points along the trails and paths providing further details about the surrounding wildlife and a number of picnic sites. There are outdoor activity areas for children and cycling is encouraged as part of the National Cycle Network passes through the park. The nature trails, bird hides and access for all paths, enable everyone to explore at their own pace.
