SS9798 : Maerdy Hall, Maerdy

taken 17 years ago, near to Maerdy, Rhondda Cynon Taff/Rhondda Cynon Taf, Great Britain

Maerdy Hall, Maerdy
Maerdy Hall, Maerdy
Arguably the most famous landmark in the village, the Maerdy Workmen's Hall and Institute (originally built in 1905 on land given to the workmen of the collieries in Maerdy by landlords) is due to be demolished.

The institute cost 9,000 to build and furnish and was on three floors. It had a lesser hall, billiards room and offices in the basement, with a women's reading room, men's reading room, library and refreshment room.

The stairs you see to the left of the picture are supposed to be haunted by a ghost from the other side who pushed someone down the stairs. The ghost of Maerdy hall has never been seen.
