New Jerusalems

We are delighted to work with partners from across the UK and Ireland to make available the archives of 11 post-war New Towns in a project funded by the Wellcome Trust.

Cwmbran is the only New Town in Wales, and its development is captured in our fantastic Cwmbran Development Corporation collection.  It was catalogued many years ago, but this project will re-catalogue it to modern standards and make it available for the first time on our fully-searchable online catalogue.  The funding also allows us to undertake preservation work, safeguarding the collection for use by future generations.
