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% - at no extra cost to you - 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 family or other 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 - flannel and flour mills, fish farms, cement and lime works - 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 loan and gift items we receive will be properly researched, accessioned (catalogued), interpreted and labelled by our archivists.

Send us an email to let us know your contact details and to outline your story ideas or object finds. One of our archivists or trustees will then get in touch to discuss your proposed loan or gift.
