For more news on all things Trevithick, his steam locomotives and Merthyr Tydfil in 1804 keep in touch on this website.

Did you know that Merthyr Tydfil came out on top? Merthyr, its iron masters and iron works and people like Richard Trevithick with his steam locomotives and high pressure steam engines changed not just Wales but the world.
