Terraced housing built for the ironworkers to replace the early temporary wooden huts and known as company houses, the rent deducted from workers' wages. Constructed near the works, which were in operation day and night, in 1856 (dated at number 28) and thus shortly after John Brogden and Son took over the Ironworks in 1854 from Sir Robert Price who had established them in the 1830s.

Reasons for Listing

Listed in spite of some alterations as substantially intact terracing from the mid C19 unencumbered by later development in the area and for the close historical association with the early development of the nearby Tondu Ironworks, founded 1836, much of which is still extant.
