MERTHYR HAS AN IRON HEART

2017

The iron heart from the iron bridge provides the perfect metaphor for Merthyr. It has a direct link to the days of the iron masters, it was originally cast in Cyfarthfa Ironworks using iron made in Merthyr Tydfil, it has a personal connection to Dic Penderyn and it has existed and become weathered throughout the last 200 years of Merthyr’s history. It is still here.

Location - Penderyn Square, Merthyr Tydfil, Wales

Materials - Corten Steel, Pennant Blue Sandstone, LED Lighting
