Britain By Car - A Motoring History


A former mining village in the Rhymney Valley, which at one time had two railway stations and at least four working collieries, around which much of the village’s history is based.

A purpose-built factory, operated almost entirely by a disabled workforce, producing the Austin Pathfinder and J40 children’s pedal car.

New Rd, Tir-y-Berth, Pengam, Hengoed CF82 8AU.  This is the current address (2019) of Denman & Sons, Builders’ Merchants, located opposite the former factory.

1949 - 1971.
