Welcome to Bedwellty House and Park

At the heart of Britain's social history. 

Bedwellty House is a listed Regency villa in the town of Tredegar in South Wales.  It is surrounded by a historic garden that was established in the early 19th century for the Master of Tredegar Iron Works.

Bedwellty House and Park are intimately linked with the early social history of Industrial Wales.  Its relevance continued when the house and park were given to the people of Tredegar and consequently became a centre of the labour movement in Wales, and Britain at large.  Probably the most famous name associated with Bedwellty House and Park is Aneurin Bevan, credited as the founder of the National Health Service.
