The New Glyn Valley Tramway & Industrial Heritage Trust and our Museum at Glyn Ceiriog are run entirely by volunteers and are dependent on donations, sales and goodwill.

If you are interested in the history and heritage of the Ceiriog Valley and the Glyn Valley Tramway in particular, you should become a subscribing member of our charity and consider volunteering with us.  You can help in other ways too.

If you are a current UK taxpayer, you can boost your membership fees and any donations you make by 25% with Gift Aid from the UK Government. 

We'll require your full name and home address, and you'll need to make a Gift Aid Declaration - see our Membership Application for details.

Stories & Objects:

If you have stories from the past about people who worked on the Glyn Valley Tramway or in the nearby granite and slate quarries, we'd like to hear from you.

Let's not forget the other industries that were situated in the Ceiriog Valley, they too have stories to be told.

Do you have any original photographs, records or objects relating to the Glyn Valley Tramway or to the industries of the Ceiriog Valley that the tramway once served?

Please consider lending or gifting them to our Museum at Glyn Ceiriog to expand our collections and enhance the educational experience and attraction  for visitors.

All items we receive will be researched, accessioned and interpreted by our archivists.

Contact our Museum Manager to discuss your story ideas or object finds.
