Cyfarthfa Ironworks and Steelworks

This is a collection of images of Cyfarthfa Ironworks and Steelworks, Merthyr Tydfil. The ironworks were first opened in 1765 by Anthony Bacon and Dr William Brownrigg. However, it would be under the ownership of Richard Crawshay, having taken over ownership in 1786, that the business would rapidly grow. During this time the Cyfarthfa Ironworks became a leading supplier of iron, cannon and cannon balls to the British Navy. The ironworks, and later steelworks, would remain in the ownership of the Crawshay family until the early 20th century, when it was bought by GKN the proprietors of the Dowlais Steelworks.
