ST1788 : Bedwas Workmen's Hall & Institute

Bedwas Workmen's Hall & Institute
Bedwas Workmen's Hall & Institute
A fine example of a surviving workmen's hall and institute, dating from the 1920's (the era of the General Strike) and built to help make Britain 'a land fit for heroes' in the aftermath of the terrible Great War. So, a symbol of turbulent times when working men wanted to better themselves and their communities. Their legacy lives on here; today the building is used by an adult education organisation. Though sadly I don't expect it is still used for dances, cinema or as a meeting place where local men share ideas on community initiatives, politics or ideology.
