Visit us

The Aber Valley, located in South East Wales has two main communities - Abertridwr and Sengenydd which grew around the mining industry in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries.

Come and visit the The Heritage Museum located in Senghenydd Community Centre.  The Museum is dedicated to the rich heritage of the Aber Valley in Caerphilly, with a particular emphasis on the two mines (The Universal Colliery in Senghenydd and the Windsor Colliery in Abertridwr) which once dominated the Valley. In particular the community have donated a great many photographs along with a vast array of artefacts and memorabilia all of which are on display in the various display cabinets and on the two inter-active touch screens.

After you've visted the Museum why not take a walk along the Aber Valley Heritage Trail for it's spectacular views across the Bristol Channel and sites of historical interest. Last by no means least pop into the Rose and Crown for a pint and a meal.
