The Rhydymwyn Valley History Society was founded in May 2008 and its core interest is the operation of the Valley Works at Rhydymwyn and the involvement of Tube Alloys in the site. It is a
story of wartime directed labour and billeting, the enfranchisement of female labour, the involvement of common people in a worthy, but distasteful, duty. It is not, in any way, an attempt to
glorify war or to condone militarism.
We currently have over 800 members and new members are always welcome! We welcome everyone who wishes to become involved, irrespective of age, gender, sexual orientation, race, colour, ethnicity,
political persuasion, religion or belief.
Meetings are held each month and take place in the Visitor Centre on the site.

The Rhydymwyn Valley Site is open to members for managed access on weekdays from 8am to 6pm and at weekends from 9am to 5pm (holidays excluded).
We have ambitious plans for 2015 onwards which need funding. Our sole income, except for occasional grants, depends on donations (most of which come from Open Days and guided tours). The residue
comes from initial subscriptions and annual donations from our members. We ask that, if you think we provide value, you support us further by contributing?
We now accept contributions via PayPal. Contact us for details.
