World Heritage Status For Merthyr Tydfil Iron Heritage Town

This petition had 18 supporters


The policy of Merthyr Tydfil council is if there are no industrial remnants left, there is no bill for their maintenance, to this end they have systematically destroyed all evidence of our status as the Iron capital of the world. Where the first steam engine ran.The town that admiral Nelson visited to see the Cannon being built that secured the British empire.The link shows the part of the Cyfarthfa Ironworks where the Thorns factory stood which was needlessly destroyed to build a B&Q store,

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-wales-23789389/merthyr-tydfil-iron-works-exposed-by-diy-store-project   I have photographs showing its total destruction. A Merthyr Tydfil spokesperson misled us by saying that only the tops of some walls were lost.

 Blaenavon has been transformed because they sought and were granted World heritage status. It is time Merthyr Tydfil is granted  World heritage status, to protect what little industrial archaeology we have left, from destruction by the cretins who run Merthyr Tydfil council.
