I wanted to trace my greatfsthers roots and all I knew was his name and how he died in the pits. The volunteers where so helpful and found the census for me. I found out he was a rider and had been decapitated. They also tried to find my relatives who may be still living there
I have seen so taken aback by their helpfulness and caring ways. I'm planning to go back next year and find out more info into my family roots
Thankyou blaina museum.

This place is manned by enthusiastic volunteers. Check the opening times before you go to avoid turning up when its shut. Inside are maps, models, archives, historic photos, and exhibits of all kinds. I have relatives who came from Blaina and I traced them and their family homes. Its hard to believe this town was once a centre for steel and coal production. Well worth a visit if youre interested in the region's industrial history.

Blaina is a lovely typical Welsh village with hills rising on either side of its High Street. The Heritage Centre is housed in an old historical building above the library. And it is a mine of information on the local area - the musical sounding villages of Nantyglo and Blaina.
Maureen and Dev are volunteer staff and the outdo themselves to help visitors find any information they are seeking out. My wife is an Edwards. Her father was from Nantyglo. Her grandfather spent his life down in the mines and died of Black Lung caused by long inhalation of coal dust. Maureen spent three hours searching out information and came up with records of the great grandfather and his wife, and the actual full and noble name of my wife's grandfather, William 'Yemn' Edwards.
Unfortunately, in these financially stringent times, Blaina is suffering. Because of less work the youth are moving away, the High Street is full of 'take-aways', kebabs and doner have moved in.
The Centre struggles along paying a 'peppercorn rent' but soon the rent may rise and they will be forced to move out, perhaps never to re-open again, which will be a sad day for Nantyglo and Blaina.
I urge anyone who has an interest in this Centre to send donations in order to keep it open, to keep resources visible for all to witness. Places like this preserve the roots of man!

If you want to discover more about the history of Blaina and Nantyglo then you can not go far wrong with a visit to this museum. They have lots of local artefacts and photos, some great old maps and documents. The experience of visiting this museum is made even more special thanks to the volunteers that run it. They not only give you a warm and friendly welcome buy they all have local knowledge of the area. Well worth a visit

If you're travelling up the A467 towards Brynmawr then the Heritage Centre is a great place to see some of the local history. There is wheelchair access via a lift and stair lift on the second floor. The maps of the mines in the area are a real useful resource for anyone with an interest in the mines of the area. I will be paying another visit shortly to find out more about what was an area full of coal mines, railways, iron works and the people who lived there. I have found the staff are helpful and knowledgeable. Drop in and look around, you'll be surprised how much is in this small museum, you won't be disappointed.

This is a small, one-roomed heritage centre. It is well worth the trip if you have an historical connection to Blaina. My ancestors lived there but the street shown on the census records no longer exists. The staff there were very friendly, knowledgeable & helpful. They explained what had happened to the street I was looking for and even showed me a Pathe newsreel of the houses being evacuated due to a land-slip. Dev Powell was a delight to chat to. There are lots of exhibits but the most important benefit of going there is to see the collection of photographs. The above review accurately describes facilities, parking and access etc.

Thanks Shirley - your helpful knowledge made our short trip to the Heritage Centre very worthwhile. We were impressed with the breadth of the exhibits, and pleased to find a few photos of streets where our family lived (now demolished).

The Heritage Centre isn't especially well signposted - it needs a 'brown sign' off the A road nearby - but once there, parking on the side roads is easy, and the centre has clean toilets too. It's up a flight of stairs though, so perhaps disabled access needs checking if you are in need of such facilities.

There is a lot to see in the centre - including a lot of filed documents, photos and lists you can go through - but it would be useful to see a complete "list of lists" available online at some point - even if the resource themselves aren't online.

If you have Blaina (and district) heritage - it's worth a trip.
