Saint Catherine's Church, Pontypridd, Rhonda Cynon Taf, Glamorgan, Wales


Notes: St Catherine's Church, Pontypridd is a large listed parishchurch in the town of Pontypridd in South Wales. It is partof the Diocese of Llandaff in the Church in Wales.

The church was built in response to the growing populationof Pontypridd, which had swelled as the town industrialisedin the 19th century. By the middle decades of the 1800s,the town had about 5000 inhabitants. Although eightnonconformist chapels and a synagogue had opened, there wasstill no Anglican church: the nearest was St Mary's inGlyntaff, which was swiftly becoming too small and too faraway. A site for the church which would become StCatherine's was donated by the Revd. G. Thomas in 1866
