Pontypridd often colloquially known as Ponty, is both a community and the county town of Rhondda Cynon Taf, Wales, and is situated 12 miles north of the Welsh capital city of Cardiff. Pontypridd is noted for its Old Bridge, a stone construction across the River Taff built in 1756 by William Edwards. This was Edwards' third attempt, and, at the time of construction, was the longest single-span stone arch bridge in the world. The history of Pontypridd is closely tied to the coal and iron industries. University of South Wales's largest campus is based in Pontypridd, with a range of facilities, including an indoor sports centre and students' union. The town is also home to a large hospital, Dewi Sant Hospital.
