NOTICE. Over the last week or so, activity in Mr Levi Lyles Field has increased. I would like to know that entering this field to see NOTHING Is putting great strain on Mr Lyle and the relationship the RTS have with him. The land with the COVERED POTAL (The Field) is leased by Mr Lyle and is private land. No one is allowed in there. THERE IS NOTHING TO SEE. IT HAS BEEN COVERED FOR 40YEARS! Please refrain from entering as this could jeopardise the project. RTS. Picture : - Steve Mackey. Just before a further 25 foot of earth was pushed over the Portal.
You are invited to an illustrated talk on the history of the Rhondda Tunnel and progress to date on re-opening it. It will be in the G2 Blaengwynfi at 19:30 on Tuesday 15th. January. Members of RTS free; non-members £1 entry. We plan a similar talk in the Rhondda Valley, date and venue to be announced.
