As dusk descends over the Rhondda Valley, deep in the heart of Wales, the small rural village of Porth eases its way through the evening. Each home is alive with chatter and laughter as children and parents immerse themselves in family life. This town, like every other town in Wales, was always alive with excitement during the evening hours. This time was precious to the villagers, who embraced it and cherished it; parents making the most of time with their children, families celebrating just being together. This light and vibrant period was in stark contrast to the dark and sombre hours that were to follow. By then the children would be safely snuggled up in bed and even parents would make sure they were sleeping too. Throughout Wales families and homes would always fall silent before the dark descended on their villages. The people of Wales called the coming of the dark the ‘Dream Time’.
