Heol Wermood  Glamorgan


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Heol Wermood like this:

HEOL-WERMOOD, a hamlet in Merthyr-Tydvil parish, Glamorgan; near Merthyr-Tydvil. Real property, £99, 859; of which £10.752 are in mines, £61, 595 in iron works, £422 in railways, and £1, 400 in gas works See Merthyr-Tydvil.

The location is a point roughly between Dowlais and Penydarren, but the hamlet of Heol Wermood covered a large part of the parish of Merthyr Tydvil, including the town of Merthyr itself. There is a map showing its boundaries in Pedler, F. J. (1930) History of the hamlet of Gellideg (Merthyr Tydfil: Joseph Williams & Sons), available on-line within the Gathering the Jewels web site (, accessed 6 Nov 2011). Additional information about this locality is available for Merthyr Tudful
