The Welsh town of Tredegar’s history is irrevocably interlinked with the iron and coal industry. By the time of the Industrial Revolution the landscape was scarred and polluted. Many inhabitants lived in miserable, overcrowded conditions with few sanitary facilities and frequent outbreaks of infectious diseases, including cholera.
Much has changed since then, and the beautiful scenery has been restored to its former glory, making the local area a pleasure to explore. Nye Bevan, Tredegar’s best known and loved son, was Minister for Health after the war years and is commemorated in the local Aneurin Bevan Heritage Trail which retraces his steps from local miner, to politician, to founder of the NHS, which he created after taking inspiration from the Tredegar miners community health scheme.
Even though times have changed, unfortunately accidents still happen and if you have been injured, and it wasn’t your fault, you may wish to contact Tredegar no win no fee solicitors.
