Pontnewynydd History Society was formed in May 2008 by a group of like minded individuals to develop public interest in all aspects of local history.
We meet at the Methodist Chapel, Hanbury Road, Pontnewynydd, on the first Tuesday of the month.
Membership of the society is £6 per year for adults and junior members pay £3 per year. Visitors pay £2 entrance on the night. New members welcome.
