Why work in Tredegar?
Situated at the north end of the Sirhowy Valley in South Wales, Tredegar is a vibrant town with a unique history. The town has been in existence for over 200 years and its past has been shaped by heavy industry, particularly iron and coal.
In the 1800’s, Tredegar was a beautiful area amongst forested hills with a few scattered farming homesteads. With the growth of the iron industry and the creation of the Tredegar Iron Company (TIC) in 1799, Tredegar turned into a 19th century boom town.
The owners of the TIC were responsible for the erection of many of the towns landmarks including the town hall and the iconic town clock which has stood in ‘The Circle’ (originally Market Square) since 1858.
Many famous residents include the former leader of the British Labour party, The Right Honourable, the Lord Neil Kinnock and snooker ace, Ray Reardon.
It is also proud to host a unique gold post box to honour Gold medal winning Paralympic cyclist Mark Colbourne who claimed Wales’ first gold of the 2012 London Paralympic Games.
