Rich in history, Brynmawr lies on the northern fringe of the South Wales coalfield in what was formerly Breconshire and was one of many communities that were irrevocably transformed in the 19th century by the region’s iron and coal industries. Similarly to other industrial communities in south Wales, Brynmawr experienced periods of prosperity and hardship as the region’s fortunes fluctuated with the price of iron and coal. However, Brynmawr has made a remarkable recovery from those difficult times, and today its residents take great pride in the town’s recent accomplishments. These include Brynmawr District Museum on Market Street, a valuable archive that pays tribute to Brynmawr’s past.
