There are three Grade I listed buildings in Rhondda Cynon Taf: a mid-18th century bridge in Pontypridd and two structures related to the coal-mining heritage of the region – the engine house (1875) and the headframe (1902) of the Hetty Pit near Hopkinstown.[1] Rhondda Cynon Taf is a county borough in the south of Wales. It is located to the north-west of Cardiff and covers an area of 424 km2 (164 sq mi).[2] In 2017 the population was approximately 239,100.[3]

In the United Kingdom, the term listed building refers to a building or other structure officially designated as being of special architectural, historical, or cultural significance; Grade I structures are those considered to be "buildings of exceptional interest".[4] Listing was begun by a provision in the Town and Country Planning Act 1947.[5] Once listed, strict limitations are imposed on the modifications allowed to a building's structure or fittings and alterations require listed building consent.[6] In Wales, the authority for listing or delisting, under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990,[7] rests with the Welsh Ministers, though these decisions are usually based on the recommendations of Cadw.[8]
