I live about 25 miles from the general Rhondda area, its too long a 
main river to know which tributary he refers too... there's a major 
geological fault listed called the Dinas Fault, and the Rhondda is of 
course a coal area... so maybe plenty of gases

The reference to 'glooms' seems a common desription of land, due to 
poems of the time or common English usage...

...maybe I'll contact the local museums see if they know of Valley of 
the Glooms..
