Serving The Town of Tredegar with News & Information Since 1991  

Tredegar Old Pubs

Tredegar is typical of a Welsh mining  town, where at one time a pub could have been found on almost every corner. Below is a list of pubs that was donated to by Mr Ralph Rockman. This list (the largest complete list of Tredegar pubs that we know) was compiled by going through manual records kept in Blackwood vaults (some 8 miles South of Tredegar).

We would also like to thank regular forum member Sassafras for taking the time to send in some excellent photo's.
