Our website tells the story of the campaign to promote the pioneering work of Cornish engineer Richard Trevithick – and the incredible story of the world’s first railway journey at Merthyr Tydfil in Wales.
We are fighting to:
- right the wrongs of history – which has consigned Trevithick to a footnote in television documenteries and text books
- spread the word about Merthyr Tydfil’s stunning industrial heritage and
- campaign for a new working replica of Trevithick’s steam engine to be built with for a new heritage railway track in Merthyr Tydfil.
Show your support for our campaign by sending us your details and we’ll keep you up to date with news of Trevithick and Merthyr Tydfil. Keep in touch, stay in touch.
