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.

Membership of the Trust starts from just £12 a year for adults (£9 a year for over 65s and under 18s). There are joint, family and life memberships available too.

Members receive our magazine Two Feet, Four & A Bit (normally published three times a year) and are entitled to attend and vote at our Annual General Meetings. 

Download and print a Membership Application Form, fill out your details, then return the completed form to our Membership Secretary with your payment. You can also pay by direct bank transfer - see form for details.

If you are a UK taxpayer, you can make your membership subscriptions (and any donations) go 25% further at no additional cost to you, simply by making a Gift Aid declaration.

If you have not already done so within the past 3 years, please complete a Donation & Gift Aid Form and return it to us. We can then claim the eligible gift aid amount directly from HM Government.

Regular working parties are held at our Museum site in Glyn Ceiriog for volunteer members who like to be hands on.

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.
