View of the Taff River near Pontypridd in South Wales. The name is Welsh for ‘bridge of earth’ and it is at this point that the river was shallow enough to cross on foot to the other side. The River Taff is approximately 40 miles long and flows from its source in the hills of the Brecon Beacons to the Bristol Channel. The artist of this print Samuel Hieronymus Grimm. Swiss by birth, Grimm settled in England in 1768 and made his living by accompanying wealthy patrons on their travels around the country.
