Merthyr Tydfil's historic Vulcan House reopens as £2m affordable housing scheme

Merthyr Tydfil's iconic Grade two listed Vulcan House officially opened today after a £2m redevelopment.

Formally a brewery and then an iron foundry, it became a centre of activity for the Chartist movement in the 19th Century.

It now has a very different future - made into affordable housing as part of the regeneration of the area.
