Ynysfach Engine House

Discover Ynysfach Engine House

The Ynysfach Engine House was built in 1836 for the adjacent Ynysfach Ironworks.  They were owned by the Crawshay family - who also owned the world famous Cyfarthfa Ironworks.

The Ynysfach works closed in closed in 1874 and consequently the Engine House fell into disuse. It was restored in 1989 and re-opened as a heritage centre.  It's currently open to the public and offers you an introduction to the Merthyr Tydfil heritage story, with a view of some of the internal engine house workings downstairs.
