Ebbw Vale: Town of Iron and Steel
The town of Ebbw Vale grew up around the Ebbw Vale ironworks, later steelworks, which were first established in 1786. In the 1860s Ebbw Vale became a noted steel
producer and by the 1960s it became the most advanced steelworks in Britain. In 1979 the site was redeveloped as a tinplate plant, which was closed and demolished in 2002-2005.
