Blaenavon Iron Works
Blaenavon Ironworks is an industrial museum in Blaenavon in Wales. The ironworks was of crucial importance in the development of the ability to use cheap, low quality, high sulphur iron ores worldwide. It was the site of the experiments by Sidney Gilchrist Thomas and his cousin Percy Gilchrist that led to "the basic steel process" or "Gilchrist-Thomas process".
The works were open between the years of 1789 and 1902.
Coal House was a reality TV series shown one BBC One Wales, consisting of three welsh families living for two weeks in Stack Square at the ironworks, using only what would have been available to them a hundred years before.. The roles of the family included men working at the colliery and women staying home to prepare food as it would have been at the mining time.
