our industrial past is to be recognised by trail of statues in stainless steel about the town
The six-mile Homfray Trail at Bedwellty Park will be adorned with 15 sculptures in all, marking figures from throughout Tredegarís history.
Costing approximately £40,000 and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, it is hoped the life-sized portraits will draw people into the park
our town has a great industrial past with many firsts in the world
and at least as important as Ironbridge, shropshire
The sculptures will be mounted on plinths of limestone cut from Trevil quarry

I find it quite ironical,that stainless steel statues should be funded by people who pay the tax on those who are bad at maths;AKA The National Lottery.
