Kilgetty Iron Works (Stepaside) Iron Smelter (United Kingdom)


This was a mid 19th century iron works erected to take advantage of local anthracite coal measure and iron stone resources.
On the ironworks site - the Platform building, formerly the workshops, smithy and sawmill for the ironworks, has been consolidated and the walls capped to prevent deterioration. A crack in the revetment wall behind, and to the west, of the casting shed has been repaired by using concealed bolts and cement mortar. As there were no foundations to the casting shed walls, and the front, east wall was begining to lean outwards, the walls were underpinned. No major work appears to have been carried out on the blowing engine house, although all woody growth has been removed from the walls.
