Welcome to the site with the best information of the History of the Darran Valley



The village of Deri is a little known jewel nestled in the Darran valley, an offshoot
of the Rhymney valley. Originally a mining village it is now a much sought after
residential area which maintains the best of traditional valley community life.
Deri is surrounded by countryside parks and areas of natural beauty and is in easy
