Background information > Bute Town is a community of 48 houses built in the late 1820’s to house the Iron workers community on the northern edge of the South Wales Coalfield.

Housing was a major consideration for industrialists and whilst much of the housing was quite basic (in modern day terms), there were exceptions where space, location and facilities were an attraction to bring skilled workers to an area. Bute Town, or New Town as it is named on the Census returns until 1871, provided good quality housing with gardens and stables away from the ironworks (smoke and dirt). This makes Bute Town an interesting place to visit today.
