Story

No such public memorial monument, inexplicably, exists or has ever existed in the village. It is high time that such a tragic event should be commemorated for all time.

    Huge thanks to all who have so kindly and generously donated to our Project so far. We are well on the way to achieve something which should have been seen to and done a lifetime ago.

    The two canisters carried by a Heinkel 111 bomber, each canister holding 200x 1kg Incendiary Bomblets, were fuse-timed to burst open within seconds of being released from the aircraft. The result was to scatter the Bomblets all over the place when they hit ground level and detonated. Hundreds fell and exploded on the mountainsides around Cwmparc and many fell and exploded wiithin the village itself.

    Thank you for doing this - both my parents remembered that night vividly as 6 and 7 year old children - dad sheltering in the cellar at home in Park Road and mam seeing the sky alight from Treorchy.

    Good luck with your fundraising. My Nana, mother and 2 uncles were wartime evacuees from London. So sad so many lost their lives that night including children sent away to keep them safe. RIP all xx
