Do you need to make a Brynmawr accident claim? Brynmawr, which is sometimes hyphenated to be Bryn-Mawr, is a market town found in the Blaenau Gwent region of south Wales. The town’s name directly translates as meaning ‘big hill’ and this is due to the settlement’s positioning at 1,250 to 1,500 feet above sea level at the head of the South Wales Valleys. That elevated location also leads to Brynmawr often being cited as ‘the highest town in Wales’.
A potted history of Brynmawr
For much of its early history, the settlement now known as Brynmawr was actually a small and quiet village known by the name of Gwaun Helygen (Cors Helygen in Modern Welsh, meaning “marsh of the willow” in English), which was located in the historic county of Brecknockshire.
All of this change took place during the Industrial Revolution and more specifically when the Nantyglo Ironworks was situated in the local area. This created the need for lots of new housing for the ironworks employees and these were built around the original village, to create Brynmawr.
Modern day Brynmawr
The coal mining and ironworking industries have long since declined in Brynmawr, as well as the rest of Wales, and this has led to something of a decline in activity within the town of Brynmawr.
What this lower level of activity within the town means, amongst many other impacts, is that Brynmawr is now the location of considerably fewer accidents and injuries than it once was. Before you assume that this means you needn’t learn more about Brynmawr accident claim proceedings, however, you should read on below.
