DEMOLITION AND REHOUSING: Neath - Abergavenny Trunk Road Heads of the Valleys Road: Re-housing by Crickhowell RDC

Date range1950-1962
LocationNational Archives (see all files stored here)
CatalogueSee entry
File baseSeries MT, subseries MT 39


The construction of the first section of the new Heads of the Valleys road, from Abergavenny to Brynmawr, involved the demolition of 19 houses in the Clydach Gorge. This file deals with the rehousing operation that followed. For whatever reason, this turned out to be a far more protracted and difficult operation than it should have been, and created considerable problems for the planning of the road.

There is a great deal of correspondence here with the Clerk of Crickhowell RDC, as well as with individual tenants.
