 The Iron Industry in Maesteg
Preface.
Since the publication of 
‘A Cambrian Adventure,’ a History of the Iron Industry in Maesteg,
in 2001, further research has uncoverednew material which helps build a more complete picture of thissignificant pocket of iron production. The additional material has been conveniently included in this reference edition.The newly-included information has been gleaned from asurprisingly wide range of sources including
The Barbados Museumand Historical Association, The William Wordsworth Trust 
atGrasmere, and
The Institution of Civil Engineers
in London, as wellmore local sources such as the recently-completed online catalogueof 
The Neath Antiquarian Society
archives.The new material relates to the beginnings of the MaestegWorks, and its development in the 1830s, and throws some new lighton the personalities who prompted the expansion of the Llynfi Worksand the consequent development of Maesteg. There is also some newmaterial regarding production details at the Llynfi Works and themarkets served by the Llynfi iron companies. Also, the reasons for the liquidation of the Llynfi, Tondu and Ogmore Company in 1878are outlined. However there are still significant gaps in the record, particularly in the early 1840s, a pivotal time for the Llynfi Worksand the history of the Maesteg district.David LewisSeptember, 2012.
