The Winding House in New Tredegar is the museum for the Caerphilly County Borough - with fascinating and engaging exhibitions, the remarkable Victorian winding engine, an exciting events programme and the "best cup of coffee in the Valleys" (according to some regular visitors). What's more, admission is FREE!
Butetown, this model village was one man's dream of quality workers housing at a time when other ironmasters were debating whether or not the lower classes could even use a toilet. Nestled at the top of the Rhymney Valley, it is an architectural gem.
