Description

The Hodgson and Stead Weighbridge was once used on the Tredegar Estate to weigh large loads. Established in 1852, Hodgson and Stead manufactured weighbridges and weighing machines. During the late 19th century the company regularly advertised their depot at Newport Dock in the 'South Wales Daily News' and the 'Western Mail'.

The Tredegar Estate once covered 53,000 acres in south-east Wales beyond Brecon and into Cardiff.

This weighbridge is no longer operational and is firmly set into the ground. It is on public view, located next to the Brewhouse Tearooms at Tredegar House.
