The Bedwellty House Story




Bedwellty House, named after the ecclesiastical parish in which it stood, is a rare, early 19th Century iron-master’s residence of historic and architectural significance. It has been integral to the town of Tredegar which has had such an impact on national and world history.

The author of this A4 booklet traces the fascinating history of the house which was built on the site of Coedcae y Cynghordy farmhouse and purchased by Sam Homfray, the town’s first iron master. It eventually fell into decline and disrepair before being restored in 2009 with the aid of a 5.5 million lottery grant.
