The Site

The Tondu Ironworks site is the best preserved Victorian ironworks in Wales and the area has now been developed into a heritage park attraction for local people, visitors and schoolchildren with excellent facilities for disabled people, families with small children, cyclists and those wishing to learn more about the importance of the iron making industry in Wales.

The site was designated a Scheduled Ancient Monument in 1996 by CADW, the organisation responsible for the preservation of heritage in Wales. Tondu Ironworks began production in 1836 and ceased in 1896. In 1946 the site became the regional headquarters for the National Coal Board, a role it served until 1986. Tondu Park Ironworks provides us with a unique legacy of the industrial revolution in South Wales and is particularly noteworthy for a series of early coke ovens and lime kilns.
