Blackwood is a small market town on the banks of the River Sirhowy, positioned in the Welsh Valleys in southern Wales, home to over fifteen thousand people. From it's humble beginnings of a cluster of cottages, and rambling farms it expanded with the help of the Colliery Master John Hodder Moggridge, whose innovative approach led to him building rows of houses, and cottages with a vision of a model village in the 19th Century. Today the town is a buzzing and thriving shopping destination with the added appeal of being surrounded by beautiful countryside that pleases the soul. With it's interesting mixture of buildings, wide High street where trams rattled through in times past, to the engineering wonder of the Chartist Bridge which graces the skyline, built in 2005 spans the River Sirhowy linking the town of Oakdale to Blackwood. At the entrance to the bridge the poignant figure stands commemorating the Chartist Movement which gathered in Blackwood in 1839 and marched en mass to Newport in their battle of The People's Charter, which demanded better living and working conditions, although many of the members were eventually transported to Tasmania for the part they played. Blackwood with it's intriguing past in Welsh history will satisfy today's explorer seeking something different.
