A perfect day for Celtic English Academy at Cyfarthfa Castle

Posted by Pete Price on 17-Aug-2015 16:46:00

On one of the hottest days of this summer, Darren, one of our Celtic English Academy teachers gathered his students to visit one of the most amazing industrial history sites in the World as well as in South Wales.

As we made our way through the vibrant summer colours of the Welsh valleys in the Celtic English Academy minibus, Darren set the scene with his local historical knowledge of our destination, Cyfarthfa Castle, which is now a museum, leaving us all in suspense.

The museum houses the first steam whistle, the first voting ballot box and dresses by Laura Ashley and Julien McDonald.  The surroundings, Cyfarthfa Castle, home to William Crawshay II and family, serve as a reminder to the Ironmasters dominance over the town and the wealth the iron industry brought to the area.


The 'Ironmaster' William Crawshay commissioned Cyfarthfa Castle in 1824. This grand castellated mansion overlooked his immensely successful ironworks and has been called, "the most impressive monument of the Industrial Iron Age in South Wales".
