Trevethin

Trevethin ( _cy. Trefddyn) is a suburb of Pontypool in Torfaen, Wales.

History & Amenities

It is a modern suburb, built around a small village in the 1960s and '70s and is all but merged with nearby Penygarn. In 2005 it was announced that the district's local school, Trevethin Community School, was to close and be amalgamated into nearby schools. The school buildings were then taken by Ysgol Gyfun Gwynllyw, a Welsh language medium secondary school.

Trevethin is situated in Pontypool and is on the southern most point of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Near to Trevethin are various famous landmarks including The Folly Tower and Grotto both of which were originally built by the Hanbury family during the 1700's.

Trevethin has been awarded Communities First status and has a strong partnership board.
