The village developed alongside the coal workings at the Tarenni Colliery, which closed in 1949.
In 2008 the community came together at a public meeting held in the local primary school regarding the long neglected park. As a result, Godre'r Graig Community Association (GCA) was formed to provide a vehicle for the community to take charge of the park and bring it back into use.
