Cwmbran Historical Society

The Society was formed following two well attended public meetings at Cwmbran library in 2003. It was apparent by the interest shown at the initial meetings that the past history of Cwmbran and surrounding areas should be preserved , photographed and recorded for future generations and the people of Cwmbran; the Eastern Valley; Torfaen County Borough; Croesyceiliog and Llanyrafon community council; together with Cwmbran and Henllys community councils. 

Since the formation the Society has held regular monthly meetings on the 3rd Wednesday of every month (except August) at 7.30 p.m. at the R.A.F.A.Club in Cwmbran.

We normally have a guest speaker every month on a chosen subject often accompanied with a slide show type presentation. We have a well balanced committee who work very hard for the society organising visits and events through out the year. New members and visitors are always welcome .
