What To See:

Our Glyn Valley Tramway & Industrial Heritage Museum is established in the Old Tramway Engine Shed at Glyn Ceiriog and on the adjacent former station yard and nearby tramway coal wharf.

The Museum has an extensive archive for research  study and a significant number of interpreted displays of historical records, artefacts, photographs, literature, ephemera, models, tools and equipment associated with the former Glyn Valley Tramway and the industries of the Ceiriog Valley that the tramway served from 1873 until its closure in 1935.

In addition, visitors can view:

We are re-creating a little piece of the Glyn Valley Tramway in the village of Glyn Ceiriog as a reminder of the past, an educational experience and an attraction for visitors.

On your journey by road up the Ceiriog Valley, you will also pass by the original GVT waiting room buildings at Pontfadog and at Dolywern.
